…just a little idea for all those short girls that have ALWAYS to shorten standard trousers. My last purchase (at the market, second-hand Moschino for 1 euro) being a subtle herringbone gave me the idea: why not sewing the left hem parts to get a matching narrow tie? But (as often happens with me) I was more able with theory than with practice: undoing the hem damaged my stuff (it tended to become fringes, if you can undestand what I mean) so I founded myself with less material than needed, and doubling it was tricky. Maybe I can use it as a shoestring, not as a tie…
