I apologize for being absent the last two weeks. I was having some technical difficulties with the site, but I’m back with more to share!!!
Knowing you have to alter your jeans because you aren’t 5’6” can be really annoying, but altering for your own entertainment is such a great way to make your clothes your “own”. Creativity can strike and the unlimited ways for you to create a new look can help you find more things you didn’t even know you would like.
Don’t go crazy with the scissors, but think of how you want it to come out. Of course, there is no fault in going to a professional for help. Skirts can be altered, pants, and jackets, but there are endless possibilities to personalize your clothes such as sewing on some patches on your jeans, adding some colored thread on your hems. Adding some new holes on your jeans and maybe even painting, which nail polish seems to work…to add some cool texture. Don’t get carried away because you could end up wearing an art project instead of clothes…
Not all of us are built like models so sometime we have no other choice but to alter our hem lines but that’s when you can make it fun. Making a top into a crop top, shortening you jeans, cutting you sleeves off those long sleeve shirts because the sleeves are just so dang long, may sound like extra work you have to get done during your busy week, but it can be fun if you do it with a friend! sounds clíche..I know. But its true! Run down to your nearest craft store and alter, fringe, and make it happen!!!
