Fall fashion update

I've donated a bunch of clothes to charity, but some remain that require alteration.  I'll occasionally splurge on a tailor for complicated waistband stuff or princess seams, but I'll often just take to my clothes with a seam ripper and hope for the best. 

This summer, I bought a couple tanks that looked horrible on me as they were.  After shortening the straps, they've been go-to pieces.
Last night I attacked some blouse sleeves.  I'll try to do the alteration when I get the sewing machine out (I need to start on Halloween costumes anyway).  Worst case scenario:  I'll have a tailor make shells of them!  
The bottom line is that a little bravery goes a long way.  Wish me luck!
