Changes

Alterations, to be more specific. Now that I’ve finished the corset, my next big project is to help my Mom expand her wardrobe, and we’re starting by making some pieces she owns already work better for her.

The top pictured below is a great color on her and a fabric she loves, but the original neckline was far too low for her to wear in any sort of professional setting. So, I removed the panel of fabric set into the V, and added one that came higher. Since I couldn’t find a matching fabric, we used a solid black. Now, it’s a more appropriate style.

The second quick fix involved a nearly identical technique. This top originally had slits on the sides. Unfortunately, the effect when she wore it was that the peek-a-boo of fabric from her slacks tended to highlight her hips in a less than flattering manner. So, once again, I stitched small V’s of dark fabric in to fill the gap.

I’m making some original garments for her as well, but none are far enough along to blog about just yet. So… more soon!
