At alternew, it is our main goal to be transparent, convenient, and affordable.

Neck Line

Prefer a v-neck? A scoopneck? Crewneck feel too tight? The neckline is one of the simplest ways to create garments that fit your personal preference and taste!


Ignore the size! Look for something that fits your widest body part, and then tailor everything else down.


Love the fit of a pant, make it your favorite shorts. Have a midi skirt from last year, but looking for a mini to add? Look no further than a simple hem!

Collars and cuffs see the highest amount of use in a shirt.  They deserve a sustainable refresh, try a print or a contrasting shade!


Find the perfect fit, get the sleeves hemmed. Tired of your blazer? Take the sleeves off entirely and make yourself a vest!


We want you to take control of your wardrobe, and we’re here to help!  Let us assess your requests and let you know how best to achieve what you’re looking for!
