Dresses for Alterations by bizziebeeme

Dresses for Alterations

One on the left take in from a size 12 to size 8, the dress in the middle taper sleeves and new zip fully lined too including the sleeves. and the dress on the right I did not do as it needed major alteration- virtually a remake.

Been busy in the sewing room all day. Note to one self must try taking photos during the day- take a break and take a photo.... a good habit me thinks!

1. Been a bit of a challenge getting back into the alterations as lacking a bit of confidence but coped with no problems at all. ( well except one which is a bit of a remake but I'm sure she will understand)

2. Tasty dinner - vegetarian bolognese

3. John Lewis had the zip I needed for the alteration.

Thank goodness for people like you who can and do sew. All of that sounds completely daunting to me.
Insanely enough, when I read your #3, I had to stop and tell myself you didn't mean Congressman and Civil Rights icon John Lewis, so lately in the news for his critical remarks about President Trump. Pretty sure he didn't have the zipper you needed. :-) No John Lewis stores where I live.
