Two top tips

August 11, 2011

What to do for a piece of clothing that is not quite your size? I had some tops (received as a gift and, yes, bought from sale myself before the pledge) which were too big. One way is to shorten the straps but here’s something different.  I just cut the straps from the back end and tied them together like in a halter top. Quick and easy!

The light green top had a little needle and thread treatment. I pulled the straps together and attached them to each other. Ready with a few stiches!

PS. My pledge of not buying any new clothes for a year became a 16 month period. It ended last weekend with a t-shirt from here. 🙂
