I undid the bias tape on the top and armholes. I then took in the dress about an inch from the top. Serge the excess off. Then reattach the bias tape. Done!
Just a simple fix. It totally changes the dress.
It really made the dress work and fall at the right places.
(and don't laugh all the photos coming up are me after taking a dance class and I was too lazy to take my hair out of braid and put on makeup-I just ran with it. )
