I got three crochet tops as presents, I love the stitches but they all don't look right on me, one is bit loose, in others the short sleeves are baggy. I am heavy on top and these make me look square.
 I can't crochet and can't send them back to the person that gave these tops as presents.
What are some tricks to fix tops that are already finished? Any ideas?

These are 2 of tops: The lilac one has a lovely hexagonal stitch but is baggy. The orange one is a bit too tight. I have a off white one that is too baggy everywhere.
Thx!

I don't know how to fix them formally, but my general fix for tops that are too big is to add a ribbon to it somewhere. I had one top where the collar was too loose, so I put a ribbon in the collar that I would pull tight and tie in a bow. This fixed the fit as well as adding some more charm to it. However, this only works where it's too big, not too small.

I sew, crochet, bead, make natural toys for kitties, and so much more.
