This is an extremely easy alteration that is a bit similar to the video here:
What you’ll need:
- a needle
- some thread
- (optional) thimble
- pins to hold fabric in place
- a tape measure
1. Measure your cap circumference. Divide this number by 2. (Remember this number.)
2. Invert your wig cap.
3. Fold the wig in half down the center so it looks kind of like this . . .
4. Measure the side of the wig from the center front of the perimeter to the bottom center of the nape at the perimeter. (Like below.)
5. Take this measurement and subtract the number from Step 1. This is how much you will need to take in (via darts) on each side of the wig.
6. Pinch a very small section (the size of the number from Step 5) of the cap and pin into place. We recommend doing this dart right behind the ear tab for best results. (However, if you are trying to tighten a lace front like the video, then you’ll want to do this right in front of the ear tab instead.)
7. Hand-sew the dart down with a simple needle and thread.
8. Remove pins. Voilà! ;)
