From old pajamas to the cat's pajamas!!

Being in a big family, there are a lot of hand-me-downs in clothing. One of the biggest problems with this is that something that may look great on one person isn't always going to look nice on someone else. This is especially true when is comes to people with different body types. This is where altering clothing becomes both hand and fun. Taking something old and making it new is a great skill.

The other day I noticed my little sister wearing an old tank top that belonged to my older sister. The neckline was too low in the back and it looked a little strange. After about 10 minutes of convincing her, she let me take my sewing machine to it. With a bit of leftover lace from the red skirt, after twenty minutes, it looked much better on her. Here is a picture of the back after I altered it.
