Tailors

Postby Summer » Wed Sep 07, 2016 9:42 pm

I love dresses as they can be cooler and allow for a better shape, well that's my opinion anyway.

Sometimes, though, I find that the promise they show in a shop (or ebay) isn't always replicated when I see myself in the mirror at home. I know that they clip them to hug the figure of any mannequin in shops and they look really good there.

Has anyone ever thought of, or even gone to a tailor or alteration service for CD specific garments? I must have so many blouses, dresses and other clothes which need this service.

How have these services been to you?

Just pull all the excess material together in a bunch behind your back and stick a plastic clothes peg on it. All the top models and stars do it, that's why they are always photographed from the front. If you check out photoshop you will see the setting for 'remove plastic clothes peg'.
Hope this helps.

No, because I have the perfect figure...lmao

Really, I've not done it because I try stuff on in shops, and if it doesn't look good, I don't buy it...

Debbie, I must be a funny shape. I will also see if I have a clothes peg button in real life.

Thanks

I started sewing about 6 months ago and have altered quite a few things. It's actually very easy to take in the waist of blouses for example, which for me emphasises the waist/hip ratio to good effect. Just put the blouse on inside out, pin the seam new and run it through the machine! I practiced on old t-shirts first. As Debbie says though, trying on in the shop is simpler.
