In my opinion, hemming clothes is the most basic form of sewing. This practical skill comes in handy when needing simple modifications. I found this fabulous BDG top (a line that Urban Outfitters carries) at my favorite second hand store called Red White and Blue. I go crazy in there! I always find great things and before you know it, I have a full cart and am playing the eeni-mini-mynie-mo game. This last time I walked out of there with 11 items of name brand clothes like GAP, Fossil, Tommy Hilfiger, BDG and more for under $50! Steal of a deal if I say so myself.
I love the vibrancy of this top but wasn't a fan of how long it was. It came to my upper thigh which in turn accentuated my backside. Here are the simple steps I took in order to get the perfect length.
Grabbing a pair of scissors, I snipped off the excess fabric from the bottom. Having the plaid pattern helped to make sure that my line was straight.
