Being short has never been a big issue with me. I'm fine with being short and I'm used to being the shortest everywhere I go 99% of the time.
But sometimes, I can't help but wish that I were a few inches taller. You see, when I buy pants, they almost always have to have the lengths adjusted no matter what size I buy - petite, short,... Problem is, I'm a smart buyer (translation: kuripot) and would mostly buy clothing only when they're on sale and if I factor in the cost of getting the lengths adjusted, that would bring the price up to (almost) full price. This does not sit well with me, so I do my own hemming with what meager sewing skills and tools I have.
Last week, I bought several pairs of dress pants / trousers and I finally received them today. I had been dreading this package because I wasn't looking forward to hemming several pieces in a short span of time.
Imagine to my surprise when I fit all 4 trousers and realized that they were the perfect length! I had ordered the items in this size based on an earlier in-store purchase, that one was a tad long and needs to be hemmed but it fit me well. I wasn't able to find any more of the same brand / size in the store so I ordered more online as soon as I got home.
Yay. Now, I know that for Apt 9, I'm a Petite-Short (meron pala!).
