The old "one size fits all" has been rewritten in my mind to "one size fits none"! If a woman has a desire to be well dressed then it is the rare woman who doesn't require alterations on at least some of her wardrobe. There have been many times when I have noticed a woman with a beautiful piece of clothing, only to have the look marred by sleeves that are too long, an uneven hem, a gaping neckline, or shoulders that make her look like a candidate for a football team.
Admitedly, today's clothing requires fewer alterations as we currently wear styles that are more forgiving. There is current fashion that purposely includes sleeves that come down over the fingers. This can be very charming on a young woman wearing casual attire, but if a coat, or jacket has sleeves that go down over the fingers then this is ill fit.
