A few months ago, I bought a cool Sleater-Kinney t-shirt online. It's orange and has a cool picture of a cat on it. But when it arrived, it was a weird fit - not bad enough to make me send it back, but bad enough for me not to wear it much. The neck was really high and tight, and it wasn't very flattering. I kept thinking "oh, I should get it altered", but never got round to it. And I never considered trying to alter it myself because I haven't sewed anything more than a ripped jean-knee since I was about 12.
But! Tonight I just thought "fuck it", and set to work with my scissors. I slashed the neck wide, and then I hemmed it. I was astonished how my sewing skills automatically came back after a decade and a half. But they did! And now I have a cool new t-shirt with a wide, straight across the collar-bones neckline. Immensely flattering, and supercute.
I am childishly proud of myself.
