It was gorgeous this past weekend so I pulled out a dress I bought back in 2009 when I worked at American Eagle. It's been big and parachute-like for too long. After less than an hour, I had a dress that was much more flattering.
Is it just me or does it look like I'm a good five to ten pounds lighter in the after photo? I could have taken it in a couple more inches but I wanted to maintain the casual air about (plus I'm a scaredy cat and I'd rather take too little than too much).
I think this was only the first fling in a long love affair with my sewing machine and existing clothes. What was your first clothing alteration? Know any good tips?
