Now that my break has begun, I'm delving into new projects each day. Right now I'm dealing with a red dress that's being fussy.
The dress is a performance dress for the choir I am the accompanist and assistant director of. Our school colors are Red, Black and Grey; which was all I had to choose from. I bought my red dress from a consignment shop for $19 bucks and I figured I could just alter it to fit me, add some sleeves and be done with it. At the time I was a size 6 (the dress being a small 9/10 wouldn't have been that hard to alter) Well, not to toot my own horn, but I've lost a little bit of weight, bringing me down to a solid size 4. Oh goody for me. As you see in the picture, it is now quite gappy in a few areas.
I also want to add sleeves to the dress since I am technically a representative of the school and probably shouldn't be too revealed. Though, I'm not sure what kind of sleeves just yet. The girls in the choir said I should do a sleeve like this:
|the sleeves would be slightly smaller in width|
|A much more matronly look|
|EVEN MORE MATRONLY :D|
What do you all think I should do? I'm at a loss
