So I have this maternity dress that I like a lot but it was always just a little bit short so yesterday I showed you the slip I made to extend the dress a little. I've also always hated the sleeves, they are really fluttery and showed a lot of armpit so I always felt like I needed to wear a t-shirt underneath which made it bulky and uncomfortable.
Here's a finished photo with the slip and then we'll talk about the sleeves.
Notice how tight those shoes are? They also really didn't match at all, I ended up wearing different ones when I went out.
Now for the sleeves. I took in about two inches under the armpit and then added some tucks to the sleeves. They're not the most beautiful and I'm sure there was a much better way to fix them but it worked.
The before (which it turns out is incredibly difficult to take the photo myself, this is the best I could do).
And the altered sleeve.
And a really flattering armpit shot, sorry I didn't take a before. Now I can wear the dress with a light tank and it's far more comfortable.
