OLD creation, NEW post for QUICK inspiration!!!
I am tall and long-waisted, so most dresses do NOT hit my waist at the proper spot, and drive me CRAZY! Often, I buy or make fitted dresses (shift-type) so I can avoid a waistline hitting me at the wrong place.
A couple of years ago, I found a cute dress with a fun waistline treatment, but the top portion was too short. SO ….. I bought a black sleeveless top that fit, and replaced the existing top. I just cut off the old top and sewed on the new top to the elastic waistband (obviously giving myself the extra length in the torso which I needed).
Voila!!! I LOVE it, and boy is it comfortable!!!
