The situation when a beautiful and comfortable wardrobe item becomes too cramped is familiar to everyone. This could be due to weight gain, pregnancy, or the wrong wash or dry mode. However, a favorite thing can be remade so that it will not only sit well, but also acquire a new original look.
Is the thing wide and the sleeves narrow? Use homemade shoulder straps. They can be anything: lace, embroidered or contrasting fabric.
If your favorite thing has become narrow in width, use the sewn-in side inserts. The material for them can be selected in a solid color or in the color of the main product.
Contrasting inserts differing in texture and color will not only help expand the blouse, but also become an interesting decorative element.
This is how you can increase your favorite blouse or tunic in size. To do this, add inserts along the back or shelf of the product.
With trousers, proceed in the same way: use side panels along the entire length. Moreover, both from the side of the outer and from the side of the inner seam.
Early on, comfortable jeans began to put pressure on your stomach? Insert waistband at the side or back seam.
And here is a great idea of increasing the dress in all respects. I already want the same for myself!
In our time, it is not so important to repair and lengthen old things: in the era of the heyday of the mass market, it is easier to buy new clothes than to remake from old ones. But sometimes it is a pity to throw out your favorite thing, you want to update or refresh it. Shortening is most often not difficult, but lengthening beautifully is a little more difficult.
How to lengthen clothes
This is probably one of the most common ways. It looks just great! Add a strip of fabric or lace to the bottom of the garment. The color and material depends on your imagination.
A very fashionable trend this season is an insert made of transparent fabric. Place it on the hem of a skirt or light summer dress.
And this is an even more radical transformation of trousers. Openwork inserts are placed not on the bottom, but in the middle of the product. To enhance the effect, you can decorate the pockets and belt with lace. Personally, I really like this option.
For girls who love a sporty style of clothing, knitted cuffs will be an excellent option for changing the shape of trousers.
If we talk about blouses and jumpers, then there are a huge number of options. The most popular of them are lace inserts at the bottom of the product.
Looking at this photo, I immediately wanted to have the same summer T-shirt. For alteration, it is necessary to make a contrasting fabric insert in the middle of the product.
As you can see, it is not always necessary to throw away a tight blouse or a too short skirt, especially if it concerns your favorite clothes. Use these simple but resourceful tricks and stay trendy!
