As you can tell, I'm addicted to alterations. I find it so easy to alter clothes and change it into a different look without having to spend so much time on it or create it from scratch. Don't get me wrong, I love making clothes but I adore alterations for its simplicity and it takes up little to no time at all. :)
I took an oversized ivory blouse in a ladies size 16 and made it my own.
Before and after my alteration.
I made the top into almost a high low effect as you can say. I'm obsessed with high low. Eeeeekkk! :) I honestly cannot get enough. It's so feminine and such a fun look.
This is how I did this simple alteration and it only took me 20 minutes to complete. First, lay the blouse flat on the ground.
Start the cut high in the front of the blouse and then slowly dip down as you get to the back of the blouse.
Finally hem the edges.
The blouse is 100% polyester, so I didn't really have to hem the edges (although I did) because the fabric did not fray at all when I made the cut. So for those who don't have a sewing machine, have no fear you can still do this alteration without hemming.
I paired this blouse with my white lace shorts, beaded gold chandelier earrings, and multi-colored chevron flats. I was going to wear a belt on my waist, but I really liked the loose fit of this blouse so I went without it. The arms of the blouse was a little too large so I cuffed the sleeves to make it stay up. Haaha! :P
It turned out super simple, comfy and cute. :)
Blouses are theee best. They're so versatile, pretty and comfy! It gives a "I'm not trying too hard but I still look wonderful" vibe. Haha.
When it comes to clothes I don't necessarily always purchase my size, especially if they are crazy cheap. I got this blouse for $2 and I knew I could alter it. If you look in my closet there are tops that range from a size x-small to a 3x. As long as it looks fabulous that's all that matters, ladies.
By the way I finally got the time to trim my own hair this morning so it's feeling pretty good and not so damaged anymore. Hooraayyy for healthy hair! Paha! I hope all you sweets have a fabulous day! :)
