An excellent suggestion! Luckily my mom is a pretty good seamstress, so she takes things in for me sometimes, or talks me through doing it myself. If I had any dresses right now that I loved and wanted to hang onto, I'd go that route, but mostly I just want to fit into my smaller dresses again. I will have to take a couple of them in once I get smaller for sure.
