I Can Alter!

This Giordano blouse was the guinea pig.
Shortened sleeves. I refused to wear it ever since
I bought it in year 2007 because of the long sleeves!
It was not cheap to give it away which I almost did
I know how simple this is to many of you but I, considered it an accomplishment.

I finally know how to shorten sleeves trousers and pants! Yay!!

No more paying 40B to the taylor mamat at the pak soi, no more burdening my dear friend Noi to carry several working trousers to trim, no more depending on others and most of all no more worrying about I-can't-do-it! Oh, and no more mommy-do-it-for-me all the time!

When my mom visited last December, she trimmed the sleeves of a FlyNow dress because I thought I looked like an old woman on it while it supposed to make me look forever 21!
the before...
The after picture will have to wait until I get to wear it.

It kept me thinking how did mom managed to do it. When I went home, I saw my younger sis. sitting in front of my mom's sewing machine altering my brother's trousers and I went nuts! As it is known to you (or not), I am a very amateur seamstress, doing self-taught sewing. By the time I got back, I decided to put out my sewing machine and give it a go. I must be brave to cut away even though when it means no turning back!

Ended up altering four apparels
Then snip snip snip I went and not long enough Hobbit found me dancing Ta-daas around him! I am happy, Hobbit is happy and our garments are happy! Yay!

You really make it seem so easy together with your presentation but I to find this matter to be actually one thing
that I feel I would by no means understand. It seems
too complex and extremely extensive for me. I am taking a look ahead for your next post,
I'll attempt to get the hold of it!
