I've had my sewing machine for about two years now, and it's been a wonderful two years!! While I'm not so great at creating my own clothes... I have absolutely loved fixing clothes to fit me better. I've done plenty of hemming pants, hemming skirts, changing sleeve openings, sleeve lengths, taking in baggy clothes, etc. Basically I end up altering about 50% of the clothes I get, haha!
Justin and I were at PacSun last month and we both fell in love with this striped shirt. Yes, in the men's section. Justin got his usual size, and I got myself a size small-- which was quite large on me, since it is in men's sizing. We both ended up purchasing one, and I got right to work on it!! I took in the sides, the sleeves, and hemmed the bottom so it wasn't so long. And now I can't stop wearing it ;)
