There are both new ideas in fashion and there are old ideas that keep coming back. In both cases we can find that popular clothing can be altered to suit changing fashions, or to accommodate personal preference. Else, we might just need to accommodate our own physical changes as we age.
-The most common alteration are:
-Pant leg hemming
-Pants waist adjustment
-Shirt and jacket sleeve hemming
-Blazers/jackets – adjust shoulders.
-Skirts waist adjustment
-Blazers darts and seams
-Trousers leg width
-Adding/removing dress sleaves
-Adding/removing belt loops
If you have hand-me-downs clothes that have been stored for a while you might well find that there are a few good items that are worth wearing, perhaps with a few alterations.
If the items suffer a little odour after being stored you might try: washing them with borax; storing them with baking soda; leaving them inside out in the Sun for a few days.
