Like many people I enjoy lovely things. I do, however, have a fairly hefty mortgage for a single person – which is so not my fault – and I also firmly believe in A) do NOT use credit and b) DO save every month. I do sound very boringly middle-aged, aye? 😉
Anyway, being a lucky sod who has the skills and the creativity to sew and alter and adapt, I get clothes that are not expensive (long live the sales!) and alter/change them to my tastes and body. So I did the trouser-lengthening again (the same I did for the white linen trousers) on black linen trousers (same make and size); unpicked the seams on Palazzo trousers that I want to make a tad more loose; made the neckline of a cute red A-line dress smaller (A-line, because I deliberately bought it two sizes bigger so instead of being a bum-tight tunic it’s an A-line short dress); unpicked the seams of a grey satin top that I’ll alter shape-wise (can’t moan for a couple of quid!) and stitched quilt-seams into a black bra that is ever so comfy and shapely but had a few fabric problems.
