Packing away winter clothes and rediscovering summer pieces is one of my favorite things. I love re-evaluating my wardrobe and deciding what to keep or donate. But, being on a budget makes it hard to put together the perfect Spring closet. Alterations are an affordable and easy way to get something new.
More than I should, I buy things that don’t fit with the intention of altering them. But, it’s hard to find the time or motivation to actually sit at my sewing machine.
This Spring, I piled up skirts that are too long, jackets with sleeves that are too long, and pants that need hemming with the intention of getting them into circulation.
The biggest undertaking – altering this parka to fit me. I bought it on Yesstyle.com – most clothes are one size fits all (ie: shopping at night markets.) I loved the style but it made me look like I was twelve years old wearing my mom’s jacket.
Now that I’ve slimmed down the sleeves, raised the waistline, and adjusted the length of the sleeves… I love how it fits! Perfect for these cool Spring days… and saving me a few extra dollars! (;
Thanks for viewing!
