Petite Fashion Tips // No Sew Hemming

As a petite woman who loves fashion, finding clothing that fits can be a challenge. There have been too many instances in my life where I have bought something with the intention of having it altered, only to never have it altered then giving the item to someone with a bit more height. A few years ago I decided I couldn't and wouldn't do that anymore. It was a waste of money and the clothing never sat right. And while I love having clothing that actually fits, there are still those items that I just can't pass up and have to snag - even if they're a bit big.

That's where my new bff, Scotch™Essentials from Target comes in. With Scotch™ Essentials Adjustable Hem Tape, I can adjust those articles of clothing that might be a bit big, without spending a lot of time and money to have them altered. This dress is a new favorite of mine, but when I tried it on, the ends of the dress hit the floor. So I used a little Scotch™ Essentials Adjustable Hem Tape and voila! Problem solved! Now I can wear this dress, and other items that start out a little too long, anytime and anywhere, thanks to Scotch™Essentials.


To use the Scotch™ Essentials Adjustable Hem Tape, follow these instructions:

Step 1 - Remove the Scotch™ Essentials Adjustable Hem Tape from the pouch
Step 2 - Remove the backing from one side of the Scotch™ Essentials Adjustable Hem Tape
Step 3 - Apply the Scotch™ Essentials Adjustable Hem Tape to the very edge of your hem
Step 4 - Remove the backing from the other side of the Scotch™ Essentials Adjustable Hem Tape
Step 5 - Fold over your hem to your desired length, then press it into place

You can find the Scotch™ Essentials items in the closet section near the sewing machines and kits.

With options like the Scotch™ Essentials Wardrobe Tape Strips, Scotch™ Essentials Permanent Hem Bonding Strips, Scotch™ Essentials White Mark Eraser, Scotch™ Essentials Lint Lifting Pocket Packs, and the Scotch-Brite™ Lint Roller, I'm basically set for life as far as basic alterations and adjustments go! Now you can save $1 on any Scotch™ Essentials item with THIS COUPON (expires 9/2/16), or use THIS CARTWHEEL OFFER to receive 5% off your Scotch™ Essentials purchase (expires 7/30/16).
