Dress Alterations Do It Yourself?

Answer

Most anyone can do minor dress alterations such as hemming a dress. If you don't have experience sewing, more involved alterations can be difficult to do it yourself. To pin a dress to take it in, it is helpful to put the dress on inside out if you are doing it yourself. Taking in a dress in a seam is not difficult if you have a sewing machine. It is a matter of sewing a new seam on the inside of the old one. Letting out a shoulder seam or re-setting a sleeve is not for a novice at sewing. It takes skill that even seasoned seamstresses sometimes struggle with.
