It just sort of hangs there way too big in the top.
So the plan... even out the bottom hem. Pretty easy.
Then to fix the bodice, I sort of couldn't figure out how to fix it because the way to do this was to rip out seams, but this bodice was lined. In non-sewing terms- a lot of work and I didn't even know what to do with it so I'd be doing work on something I didn't know how to fix. So this sat and sat. Then after trying this on and looking in a mirror, I was moving my hair out of the way and said hmm what if I added like a dart?? This lead me to folding the bodice and egad! this could seriously work. So I symmetrically folded in the dress, pinned, and then sewed down the fabric. OMG Love!
Here is the dress done! Yeah!
Again not a fan of taking after photos, hey messy hair and don't care. But what an improvement to this dress! Perfect for fall!
