Fitting issues

I’ve mentiioned before how I love mending, and this is a related topic. When I first made this dress, the bust darts were too high, (I’ve discussed reasons for that here). It made the dress a bit snug and flattens my chest a little, I’ve long thought about moving those seams but were top lazy. Until today.

I tried the dress on and marked where my highest bust point were. I then ripped the seams and pressed a new fold from right before the highest point to where the fold had started before, I drew a line with a pen and a liner to make it easier to sew and ta daa! Much better fit. Why did I take so long to do this?

  1. Isn’t it funny how the most ‘simple’ fixes take the longest to tackle? I always hate doing them too but feel so good about it once it’s done.
