Younger sisters always have the good fortune to see some of the older sisters’ clothes handed over the years, and those who have lived this experience know very well that the only problem with this change of clothes are the fashions that change and therefore some things that need to be revised or adjusted to make them fit with the trends of our times. It is absolutely true that fashions are coming back, but it is difficult that there is such a small-time span between you and your sister that she can wear a garment back in fashion in such a short time. Of course, the problems are minor if the age difference between you and your sister is less than 3 years, because we all wear some garments bought about three years ago, but if the years are more, as I made you understand, you have to find a solution to make the garments match even today. So, let’s go and see what the solutions may be and try to find the one that best suits your needs.
Let’s go vintage
One of the quickest choices your younger sister can make is to go vintage, which is so fashionable in recent years. Instead of going to do research inside the second-hand clothes shops in your city, your sister can perfectly tap into the outfits that you used a few years ago, being fashionable and respectful of the environment at the same time, going to safeguard the environment and the exploitation of raw materials: this something that I love about vintage. In fact, the right mix of vintage fashion can give a touch of experience and history to your outfit like no other garment will ever be able to give!
Let’s become seamstresses and unleash the creativity
Since we are on a vintage theme, maybe few people know that once upon a time our grandmothers went to sewing classes where they made their own clothes, with small pieces of cloth found here and there. Well, in their place you certainly have a lot more stuff to work with, and all you need are a sewing machine that you can buy cheaply, and that will make you save some money, a needle and a thread, and you two can start to turn into seamstresses and have fun spending some time together. One type of fabric on which you can base your sewing is definitely the patchwork, that consists of the union of many types of fabrics, to create a sweater, a pair of jeans or a dress. Why do I recommend this style? Because during this fall it will be one of the biggest trends, as we saw on last year’s catwalks, so transform yourself into a fashion designer, prepare your little sister for her catwalk, and create your ideal patchwork! But of course, patchwork is not the only solution, as once you have needle and thread in hand you can do everything: make a skirt or dress shorter, cut a shirt to make something different or add a slit to a skirt or dress. Unleash your creativity!
