Hey there peeps
Well that’s another Friday creeped up on us!! Where did the week go… I have had a week filled with sewing, school work and very little house work!!
As you know Friday night is movie night at chez Traci! Tonight the boys are opting for THOR
, I’m loving that the boys are choosing actual movies and not cartoons! Gone are the days of iggle piggle
! I wave them bye with much happiness, I never did see the educational reason for a show with a farting ship!!!! I mean come on!!
Anyways on to the alteration Traci your waffeling on……..
This alteration was for a Laura Ashley
dress, The dress was for a petite lady….
I needed to shorten the shoulder straps by 2 inches……
I also had to drop the neck line at the back of the dress by say 1 inch, it would have been to high….
I then had to ladder stitch the arm hole closed again…
I then raised the hem with a ladder stitch by say 1.5 inches & the same with the lining..
AND HERE SHE IS!!!!!!!
I have to say I am enjoying the challenge of alterations… There is a element of problem solving that you just don’t get making curtains!!!! Talking of curtains, I have 1 pair to make, 1 to take up & then 1 pair to join together so I may get a wriggle on!!!
