But Alterations are Too Expensive? Many women just don’t want to invest the money to ensure their clothing fits them impeccably. They reason that if they paid $20 for a garment, why should they spend another $10 altering it?
As many of us are working towards shopping more sustainable, alterations can be a way of extending our wardrobes. We can also make what we have work for us rather than running out to buy more. Of course, it’s an easier “sell” if we’re focusing on quality over quantity when shopping. However, those of us who enjoy thrift and consignment shopping know that quality doesn’t always have to come with a large price tag.
I definitely recommend spending the money to tailor your clothes so they fit you like a glove. Fit is the primary reason for tailoring, alterations can also help to modernize your clothes or update them to line up with your evolving sense of style. As one example, as my preferred trouser silhouette changed, I narrowed many of my wide-legged pants to create a straight-legged look.
