*Edited because the pic was distorted

This is my first post on this part of the forum, and I kinda need your help.

I have a memorial service to go to tomorrow - not formal, very informal (think redneck/hillbillies, lol).  As much as this MAY fit in, it's a little too show'y for me.  Of course, I didn't realize how far cut this was until I tried it on...when I was almost finished.

I'm a very newbie sewer and what i need to know, besides wearing a cami underneath (or tank, neither of which I own) - what can I do to repair this and make it wearable.  And not make me look like I'm out to make money off my mounds, lol.

btw, my husband likes it like this, ROFL

A little stretch lace triangle or a triangle of any coordinating fabric would help keep the girls in check and look on purpose. Just sew it in the V to make it look like there is another layer under there.


Guess who's back?

i had this problem once, and my hooters are rarely a problem, haha.   Cheesy  my top had been a bit big and was pulling away too much.  i ended up just sewing up the middle front a couple inches.

Thanks.  I was thinking the triangle thing, but wasn't positive on that.  I've given up on it for the night and will find something else to wear tomorrow.  But now I know I can eventually fix it.

I was thinking the same thing but pinning it in instead that way you could take it out for when you want to wear it around your hubby.  Wink

You could put the panel in with buttons or snaps -- then it would be easy to take out, or even change if you wanted to get a different look.  The dress looks very well done!  You should be proud!

Sometimes when we need a quick fix for something like this we use a coordinating scarf and fold it and pin it in.  Then easily removed. 

Cute top by the way!!!

I've also done the triangle thing.  I've done it on some bought tops before.  Another option is to make a cowl scarf either in the same fabric or a coordinating fabric.  You can wear the scarf with anything and pin it in place on the dress if you need it to stay put.
