I bought this dress two years ago... A simple Jersey shift, very cheap, but perfect for throwing in a bag when travelling except it came mid way down my shins making it look rather dreary and slightly ridiculous on me.
It was just a matter of taking off six inches off the hem. Not a big nor difficult job, yet for the past two years it has remained in my wardrobe untouched... And unworn! Until this week when I decided I either had to alter it or put it in the charity bag.
And it wasn't a difficult job! It took just twenty minutes despite my thread breaking several times. And before anyone I have ever taught asks me when did I last change my needle... I changed it four blimmin' times, using every ball point needle I could find until finally I changed the thread. That worked! I don't have an over locker so it is not the neatest job ever but it is good enough for what was only a cheap dress to start with.
Just the job for throwing in a bag without ironing, easy to rinse out if necessary... And perfect for strolling around the streets of Siena and Florence! Now I must go and paint my toenails and pack my bags. Back soon with tales of sunshine and vineyards from the Chianti hills!
