An idea to salvage your pants

Hi Stacey,

If you have pants that you just don’t want to part with, here’s an idea that might work:

Take a pair to a seamstress and have her open the seam from the hem up and place an invisible zipper in them – so the legs flare open when you get dressed – then you can close them without any noticeable difference. I would suggest placing the zipper on the inside seam – it will be easier for you to reach. If you are satisfied with the results, it can help salvage your work clothes and save you the frustration of having to shop for a complete new wardrobe. OTOH, it’s a good excuse to shop til you drop! (oops, no pun intended)

best wishes,
