Alterations Without Sewing Video

Happy Halloween!!

Phew, that is a long title. But it might help if you really need some LAST minute pizzazz for your Halloween Costume?

Finally did another video. The delay was partly because it took me forever to actually go get the materials needed for this.

The idea came to me late summer. I bought this airy dreamy top from http://www.necessaryclothing.com/ and it was tad too big on me. They ran out of smalls and I took a chance with a medium, it was too big.

You can see from the above photo that the shoulder area is not fitting properly. It also slides off a lot during the day, which is terrible for a professional work setting.

Because this top has a deep v in the back it actually gave me a great idea to solve my problem.



Here is a step by step.

Step 1, gather the materials you need.

Aside from the shirt, you will need some safety pins and a ribbon. I recommend using safety pins that compliments the colour of the garment. I chose gold because the sleeves of the shirt has gold details.

Step 2, line up the pin and determine where you would like to pin them.

I used the ribbon to make sure the pins on the opposite sides line up.

Step 3, thread the ribbon through.

I threaded them just like sneakers, or corsets. I think it looks quite pretty.

Step 4, secure the ends of the ribbon.

Make sure you pin them down so the ribbons are definitely secure.

I hope this comes in handy sometimes for you guys and help save a shirt you like but ends up being a tad too big. Especially for those online orders.
