I have begun my assault on the pile of clothing that needs to be altered before I can wear it. I started with the easiest one: a culotte? skort? dress. It fit around me just fine, but my long body made it difficult to wear without being cut in half lengthwise.
So I cut the crotch out of thing, trimmed the excess fabric, ran the center back and front seams on down to the hem, and rehemmed it. New dress for me, as soon as spring comes and it's warm enough to wear it!
