1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Taking in a strapless dress? on: July 19, 2010 08:40:02 PM
Does anyone have any links to advice/ tutorials for taking in garments? I recently purchased a super-cute floral print dress in size 6, which was snug at the time.
I've inadvertently lost about 15lbs and now I can't hold it up.

Here's a link to the dress, so you can see the seams, etc.

I don't often sew apparel with woven fabrics (I work mostly with figure skating apparel- super stretchy and forgiving knits!) and I'm apprehensive to just start sewing on something I paid so much for.

advice?  Smiley

Half inspired by the monster bag (I can't find the link right now) and half by frecklesinoureyes' jellyfish stuffies tutorial.
He's made of lime green furry fleece, as well as scraps of white polarfleece and black powerstretch fleece. No zipper on this one, I just handstitched his bottom closed after turning him right side out.

I also added spikes and a cute little spikey tail Smiley


They seem happy together Smiley



I haven't decided yet if he will be a gift. For now, he's going to hang out with me!
