I'm short, and I always (like 90% of the time) have to alter my clothes. Petite jeans are not really petite on me, I usually hack off and additional 4 inches. So I've started buying garments which I like but may be a bit larger, and trying to alter them into something cuter. I mean, why not take to the sewing machine and turn an oversized moo-moo into a cute everyday dress, right? When I was at the thrift I spotted this dress and loved the patterning. It's kinda hawaiian looking, the mister said Halloween and was confused by my purchase but either way, the top neckline was so cute but the rest needed some help. The breast area down was all altered and taken in over 10+ inches. Most alterations are done by eye, though I do have Lucy (my vintage dress form // thanks to momo) if I need her. So whatta think, should I have left it as a moo-moo? Nahhhh! I'm much happier with the new end result, and the mister even complemented it too.
