Sewing Away

summer dress adjust

Posted on: April 27, 2013

I bought this maxi summer dress, altough it was not my exact size. It was the color, the style I have wanted for years and it was cheap, had a discounted price. So, in spite of I usually wear L, I bought the last item what was an M. I put it on at home and it was okay, except the bust, I could not button it up. So it is a simple little trick to adjust dresses ir shirts. I cut up the sides and inserted triangle shaped fabric-pieces there. I was lucky, I found an old T-shirt with a pretty similar color, what I used for the inserts. I added darrs in the middle of the extra parts to be tighter on the top and wider in the middle. So know I can comfortably wear the dress. 🙂


Few photos of the process:
