Late last year, I launched a series on the topic of alterations. I began with some thoughts from my private Facebook group on the pros and cons of having our clothes tailored and some of their personal alteration experiences. In a follow-up post, I shared a selection of my alteration success stories featuring skirts and dresses.
Now it’s time to look at the flip side of the coin, those times when tailoring goes wrong. Sadly, I can recall many such experiences, so many that this is just my first post on this topic (there will be at least one more). Some of what I have to say is embarrassing, but my hope is that recounting my alteration faux pas may help save you money and grief.
