I think I've mentioned it before, but I think it's worth noting again. I like to make adjustments to my clothes - especially when I find that I'm not wearing them often. The best example of this is this scarf - it used to be orange. It was lovely but it didn't get worn. A little burgundy Rit dye turned it into a dark mulberry color, and I was wearing it all the time. I tweak most things that enter my closet. This cotton fall-ish plaid dress was a bit large, so I washed and dried it to shrink it down a bit. I don't think there's such a thing as perfection - especially in a wardrobe. All clothes and accessories have some sort of quirk. The thing is to make it work for you.
