I am a 34 (petite) size, I like going for thrift stores, sometimes I succed in making 1-euro-good- quality-stuff-but- a size- or-two-larger fit, and my novice sewing soul is proud. But of course experiences with taking in a skirt , or shortening hems, are very different from those of adjusting a dress or shirt in shoulder area to make sleeves fit. I have tried before, sometimes not quite unsuccessfully, but it was always a long tedious tale of trials and errors. Which is the best way – I mean, reasonably quick to get decency if not perfection? I have neither too time nor a quiet place for sewing, you know… Any suggestion would be appreciated A LOT (and happy sewing to everyone!)
