The better it fits the better it looks. So whether you’re dropped a hem or a few pounds, you need alterations. Altering clothes not only makes you feel pleasantly adult and responsible and “because I’m worth it” –it makes your clothes fit. Fit is the most important aspect of style. “If a garment doesn’t fit well, none of its other characteristics matter – it’s not going to look good on you”. Alterations can transform your clothes. Even if you’re a straight off-the-rack size, a few judicious tucks can make your clothes look like a million bucks. If you’re short, have lost weight, or a special size and most clothing hasn’t been made with you in mind, or want to knock new life into old stuff, it’s also great.

The only thing is to find tailor with high review ratings in your city. If you’re a fashion freak, then you must opt alterations in your routine.

So girls! I have something for you. Whenever you’ll buy top/shirt, rush to your tailor and ask him/her to shorten a shirt or add a shirttail hem. When a sleeve is too loose, slim down a voluminous sleeve that makes a huge difference in how a garment looks. Your tailor can take in anywhere from a half inch to a full two inches from the underside sleeve seam, going from the wrist all the way to the underarm and down into the side-boob seam to create a slimmed down, prettier shape. When it comes to pants/jeans must give a right alterations, give a entire narrow look and make it little slim at the lower edges. For jackets & blazers, they need to fit properly. Some parts of a jacket are very hard to fix. Some are pretty easy and can be altered by almost any tailor. So choose wisely while shopping what can and cannot be done so you know which jackets to buy. Skirts are way easier to alter than, say, pants or jackets, so right there it’s a less risky purchase.
