tUESt)AV, JUrxfE 18, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE SEVEN Seams to Me Proper Alterations for Patterns th* pt&itef alteration of pat' terns jtefore cutting is of great importance. The easiest way is to'measure a dress that fits you perfectly and use these measurement to change your pattern.' This method is particularly effective if you do not have someone to measure you. And you do not have to be concerned with adding ease. But the garment should be similar in line to the one you are altering. For instance, if you have a shoulder problem, you should not use measurements from a kimono dress to alter a pattern with set-in sleeves. Here are some do's and don'ts: j . .> • . Across Pattern Section: The most common adjustment is made across the /pattern.. .The adjustment must'be the same all the way across the entire section of pattern, whether it is slashed or folded. See the diagrams. The top (DO), is the • proper way to short a bodied Notice that the fold is equal < all the way across. At bottom (DON'T) shows how an unequal fold can throw off the center line and side seam. There is on exception—raising a back skirt for a sway-back. In this case, the greatest amount is taken up at center back and tapered to nothing at sides. Up and Down Adjustment: When the change runs up and down (to make a piece wider or narrower) it can be tapered. The fold or " slash must be made from one 1 edge to the opposite edge or close to opposite edge to allow the pattern to lie flat on the table. If the pattern buckles the fabric cannot be cut properly. Darts: When changing their position or size the adjustment may disturb the seam lines. Be sure to check this and if necessary redraw the seam line where the dart is. Steam Edges: Patterns often can be adjusted to the seam edges. If not too much must be taken in dr enlarged, this method can be used on skirts, for instance. However, remember to redraw the seam arid cutting lines. If alteration is rhade at a curve (the hip line of a skirt, for instance) draw the new seam line in the same, curved shape as it was originally. Use, tissue paper when enlarging a pattern either : by extending seam edges or slashing and- spreading. Slide a sheet of it under the original pattern; if slashed, spread the pattern the necessary amount and pin • it to the tissue; if seam edges are extended, first pin the pattern to the tissue and then draw new seam lines on the tissue. * # s|< * Miss Scott is always glad to hear from her readers, and whenever possible will use their questions in her column, but because of the DON'T great volume of mail received daily, she cannot answer individual letters. Patricia Scott has prepared a booklet, "How to Alter Your Dress Patterns," which gives complete instructions for altering so that finished garments will fit perfectly. For your copy of this guide to correct fitting, write to Patricia Scott in care of Alton Telegraph, enclosing a long, self addressed, stamped envelope and 25 cents in coin to to cover costs of printing and handling. 3 Publishers Newspaper Syndicate Nutritionist Says ' ' ' • ';•/"••' •., American Children Are Overfed By FRANK CAREY ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., ff— A nationally known nutrition researcher deplored today the super-feeding of children in America and said it might lead to a definite shortening of the average life-span .within the next two.generations. Dr. John B. Youmans of Nashville, /Tenn., said the ,possibility 'exists that sup'er-nutri- tion in ith'e United States/-especially among i n f a n t s—Way "make the biological clock run too fast," and thus ultimately cause earlier-than-normal aging and cut longevity. He said this at a news conference at the annual meeting of the American Medical Association prior to accepting the AMA's Goldberger Award for outstanding nutritional research. Youmans, a .former director of the AMA's division of scientific activities and now president of United Health Foundations, Inc., of New York, told reporters: "I would question the tendency in this country to feed infants earlier and earlier on solid foods, and to give infants and children more and more vitamins, and higher and higher levels of energy-providing nutrients in the form of calories." "I think we should take a look at this tendency to try to make children develop faster." "Today," he added, "kids are bigger than their fathers, and girls are menstruating earlier. "American .boys are from 6 to 8 per cent taller in height and 12 to 18 per cent heavier in wegiht on the average than their fathers were 30 years ago." He said there is increased evidence of degenerative diseases setting in at an earlier age than in the past, and some evidence that more people are dying younger from such ills.
