This week, I have decided to concentrate on that never ending pile of things that need to be taken in. This pile has grown in the past couple of months as I have somehow lost weight which means my clothes aren't looking hot. I started with one of my favorite dresses, a sheath dress surprise! I bought this dress from H&M years ago, when H&M still made semi-decent quality clothes. It used to fit like a glove and I looked pretty hot in it, lately it's looking like a potato sack. So I just took in the sides.
I turned the dress inside out, tried it on and marked a couple of places with pins on where it needed to be adjusted. Then laid it on the iron board, make sure everything was even stitched. I did have to undo the hem at the bottom before taking it in. I didn't want a bulky hem, so once the sides were adjusted I re-hemmed it.
This Ann Taylor Loft dress I bought at my favorite thrift store for only $5 a couple of weeks ago. It fit perfect except it was a little long, so I took off 1 1/2" and perfect! I love the waist detailing.
