Most of my clothes are now 5cm (2″) too wide in most places and there are a couple of key RTW clothes that I just love and want to keep wearing so that’s what I’ve been tackling over the last four weeks. New clothes are still being planned at the moment. Belt adjusting has also become a new skill that I’m mastering thanks to the belt tool I had in my stash.
This RTW dress needed adjusting so at the back, I’ve taken out some of the fullness down the centre back seam.
The front neckline still needs some work ie a couple of well placed pleats, to make the front more fitted. I might give this a go on the weekend.
And yes, I will give this dress a good press before I wear it again. The dress fabric is linen with cotton lining so it’s a layer I can use in between seasons.
