I'm Sew Proud of Tasha

I couldn't resist putting up this picture of Tasha at her cosmetology class graduation. She's wearing the dress I altered for her so that her bra would stop playing peek-a-boo out of the arm hole.

When I first tried to figure out how to fix this, I focused on the side seam but that just changed the problem it didn't solve it. After a lot of pinning and unpinning, I realized the seam that ran over the chest was the one I needed to focus on. Is it totally perfect? No, but you'd have to have your nose practically in her armpit to discover that. I'm really pleased with the result and so was she.

If I could figure this out, you can too!

I guess appearing in your mom's blog is embarrassing to a teenager, but she looks cute, and the dress turned out really nicely. Plus, a person doesn't graduate from cosmetology school every day--that's quite an accomplishment!

I have succumbed to the temptation to blog, though I'm not very consistent about it. ) I just linked to you since I recently did a dress alteration of my own.
