Sizing Things Up!
Tuesday, May 22, 2012
This is my goal, but in the meantime, I've learned something helpful I'll share here.
When my clothes fit well, I look the best I can now. I found a clothing store that had something that fit me perfectly when I first tried it on. Never has this happened to me before! Then I found myself always searching there because of the fit. and I liked everything I bought, 1 or 2 things a month...because of the way they looked when they fit. Suddenly I am altering everything I have. And how handy is that when I'm losing weight steadily in the next few months?
After I began altering my things, I saw such a difference! I'm not talking about a hemline or the cuffs of a jacket.
Every day I pull another item out of my closet and give it the 20 minute alteration. Light shoulder pads are good in sweaters. Darts in the back waist of a dress...the length of the tank top.
I always took this for granted before. I'm having so much fun making the most of what I already have.
