Alterations (Part Two)

As I've mentioned before, buying clothing is not always the easiest thing for me, but last February I had my first adventure in the alterations department and it's quickly becoming a habit I love. I can't tell you how freeing it is to know that I'm not limited by the pieces available at the store.  No longer do I have to worry about mailing a piece of clothing back from an online shop if the fit isn't exactly right, and I don't have to panic if they're all out of my size in the first place. This was originally a dress on sale from Old Navy that was actually two sizes larger than I usually wear. A couple measurements, a little pinning and cutting, and a few minutes at my sewing machine were all I needed to end up with a very comfortable top.

While I love the idea of clothes shopping, the reality is not always so pretty. This makes reality almost enjoyable. Almost.


  1. Hi Heidi! You're so clever. Enjoy

  2. Good for you! My problem with alterations is that I buy things intending to alter them and then never get around to it ;) It does make shopping so much more fun, though.

  3. love this post and the Feb. post! as someone with a little extra junk in the trunk and hood and everywhere else I don't enjoy clothes shopping at all!!! Plus I'm short coming in at 5'2". So a good fit rarely happens. I've become a pro at hemming jeans though :) You look super cute, Heidi!

  4. yay, how very clever. Love the top.


Aren't you the sweetest for leaving a comment! Due to all the ads that bombard this section, I have to moderate everything first, but look for your comment to post in a day or two. Thanks so much for writing!
