Lengthy Alterations

The unseasonably warm weekend was a refreshing break from the coldest winter I can remember.  With that being said, I didn’t think I’d be breaking out my favorite leather jacket any time soon.  This Zara jacket was an impulse purchase last Thanksgiving, and was most definitely the right move.  Originally, the jacket sleeves were short on me, but everything else about the jacket was perfect.  In order to solve this common problem of mine, I decided to purchase ribbed wool not only to lengthen the sleeves, but also give it a warmer, cozy feeling of a cardigan.   It was the first time I did anything like this and was well worth it.  The sleeves came out perfect and definitely makes the jacket much more comfortable and warm.
