This past weekend, I treated myself and went on a little shopping spree to Nordstrom Rack! I hardly go shopping, mostly due to my impatience once inside, so this was a big trip for me. While carousing the racks, I began to lose interest FAST. As usual, the pickings were slim for a person of my stature. But then I had a revelation! THIS GUY can sew! And THIS GUY, who maybe doesn’t have A LOT of experience doing alterations, certainly has had lots of experience with the seam ripper!
It was like seeing the store with a whole new set of eyes! I picked up two skirts, a pair of slacks, a blouse and two cardigans (the only items that fit) within 10 minutes and I was outta there!
The pants were a size 8. I took in a good 1-1 ½” from the waist, at least ½” on the inside and outside seams of the legs and chopped 4″ off the bottom.
After looking at the photos, the only issue I have with the pants is the horizontal lines in the frontal crotch region. The pants didn’t feel tight but I’m assuming that the pull of the fabric means that I should let out the seams a bit.
I was in a bit of a time crunch as I worked, seeing as I had a job interview the following day and I wanted to wear something new. Guess the hard work paid off because I got the job!! 🙂
