I recently bought a dress off ebay and the dress i received was nothing like the picture. However i love the top of the dress and am determined to fix it!
The problem is clear:
The slit in the front goes way to high and never closes. Also a little length would be great. I guess im too tall for their sizes.
I bought new fabric but i need help in how to fix it. There are two layers to the bottom half a sheer material and a tight layer (which is terrible when i sit down) My question is what do i add the fabric to? Any help is great. Unfortunately i do not have a sewing machine so i will be hand sewing. i have lots of practice in this however.
Input is great THANKS!!
PS: I need this done before next weekend. I have to have it for the marine corps ball
