I cheated on my tailor! *oops* I decided to try out this other tailor just to compare. I am a loyal person to a fault but this time, I had to put my clothes first! 🙂
Just by taking up the hem makes a huge difference in the overall fit. It’s still slightly wide for me but it’ll do. Learning lesson for me is to check the darts of the back of the skirt before purchasing because this can be costly to slim the sides. Will I get a lot of wear from this suit, probably so I am happy with the results.
Belt: Ann Taylor perfect patent belt in granite- size XS (exotic version)
I debated getting this sides of this skirt slimmed but the tailor suggested I take up the hem first because it usually alters the fit. So I decided to listen and was happy to save some money. I probably could have gotten away with not doing anything to this skirt because it was okay but I wanted it to feel good when I wore it. So I took up the hem just a tiny bit and it really did make a difference (to me at least).
Hopefully you can see the difference. Very minor alterations but when the skirt is on, it feels just much more fitted and proportional. Am I happy with the end results? Yes! The alterations were very minor but made a big difference to me.
