If you are short like me, well you know the struggles we go through trying to find a pair of denim that actually are the right length for us. I’ve been there, having to pass up a great pair (especially if you’ve found one on a wonderfully deep discount) but had to pass it up because it was way too long. I remember back in the day when dragging your jeans along tucked under you feet was the style. Especially growing up in Hawaii where you wear sandals all the time, I would end up tucking the excess length under my foot, dragging it along the floor and ended up getting holes and the edges became dirty. Well, I’ve outgrown that look, and found that finding the right length pants for your body is a better look, making you look and feel good.
As soon as I discovered how to alter and use a sewing machine in my college days, this is what I would do. It was easy for me to do, and now I could buy that pair I really wanted and not worry that it was too long for me, I had a way to fix that! So for those of you, who struggle with the length of pants like me, take the extra step in taking it to get altered to your height! It’s worth the extra step. That’s one fashion tip that everyone could use. If there’s a piece of clothing item that you really adore, or something doesn’t fit right, take that piece to get altered. They do sell petite fit pants, which have worked for me also. Depending on the cut and fit of the pair, don’t be afraid to try new silhouettes out, and alter it to fit your body specifically, this can make all the difference in the look!
