Meet Kelly Tucker of

At a petite 4’11” tall, I was inspired to begin this blog after many unsuccessful shopping trips left me empty-handed and my closet looking bare. My size led me to search out petite-friendly brands and learn about good fit; the want for more variety led me to explore tailoring and alterations; and the extra cost of tailoring led me to work on defining my personal style (so I wont throw money away by tailoring items that aren’t “me”). Alterations Needed is where I share my journey refining my personal style and building a wardrobe with a little help my from tailor. Readers can expect to find discussions on personal style, building a wardrobe, clothing care tips, outfit inspiration (with a tomboy slant), and shopping recommendations from current store offerings.
