Hemming:

    • If the pants checked out are too long, they will need to be hemmed at your own expense. THE MATERIAL MUST NOT BE CUT!
    • Hem length will need to be 1 inch from the floor without shoes, barefooted.
    • Use a blind stitch or a whip stitch (if your sewing machine does not have these kinds of stitches, hem by hand) – DO NOT USE LIQUID STITCH.
    • The material is synthetic, if you are going to iron use LOW HEAT.
    • Iron inside out if ironing the hem and do not crease the hem line
    • Do not use DUCT TAPE!!! It ruins the material.

    • Turning your uniform in on time is extremely important. Uniforms have to be inventoried and stored before school lets out.
