LOVE my seamstress! I even took some of my favorite clothes to her TWO seperate times while I was losing weight. I didn't want to spend time/money shopping for very many new clothes until I met my goal, plus I'm one of those people who has a hard time finding things I like no matter what size I am.
In addition to having better looking/fitting clothes when the alteration was done
, I loved watching the seamstress gather up all that loose fabric and pin it next to my smaller shape! It's a great way to literally measure your success! I'd highly recommend everyone do at least ONE piece.
