Safe to say that I have basically spent half the day and a quarter of the evening, altering a thrifted coat. I bought it about a month or two ago, I fell in love with the lightweight fabric and more significantly, the unique fastening (I'll do a post on how it looks after I've finished altering). I paid £8 and thought it'd be perfect for those day trips that end up a little chillier near the evening or boiling hot summer days with air-conditioned malls and cafés.

You can see the pinning of the back seam in the photo, this is the culprit for the long hours (plus a movie). I had to change the pinning twice and the measuring tape is just frustrating, but after many torturous hours, I have completed the pinning. Now I'm just going to wait for tomorrow to finish it off, my eyes and fingers need a rest.
Anyway, I just checked in here to let you all know that I haven't forgotten the blog and I'm also trying to find a suitable tripod, as I'm planning to start filming some DIY tutorials and other blog-related stuff. So if you have any suggestions for a good tripod suitable for filming with a DSLR, with sturdy, good quality legs and a height above or around 150cm (I'm picky, I know), please pop it down in the comments section below.
P.S. I have a budget of about £30 for the tripod.
