I’m still unsure on whether I’d do this again. I didn’t fail so that does help my case, but obviously a tailor would do a much better job. I definitely wouldn’t do an alteration on a full-priced item. Though actually, I wouldn’t buy a full-priced item that needed alterations anyway. Or even a full-priced item!
The cost of the alteration was pretty low, especially considering I’ll continue to use the tools I bought.
- Mini seam ripper: $5
- Dressmaker’s white pencil: $3 (DON’T BUY – it didn’t work for me)
- White and blue marking pens: $5
And I think I had coupons so it was less than that. Win.
