It is size 12...to fit my hips...but it is too big for my top half. In particular it is sagging and bagging at the back between shoulder blades/bra strap area and top of my arse. What sort of alteration do I need to do to sort out a saggy baggy back? Take side seams in? Put in darts? Where? Help? I can sew and have a machine as well, but can't get my head around the logistics of this!
Yes, it has some smocking at the back, but only about 5-6 inches of it at top around bar strap area, below that is unsmocked and that is where the problem is...would be better if smocked to waist...there is probably enough material to smock
Ha ha have image of pinning myself into dress and being unable to get it off now!
Fits under arms ok, but could stand to be bit tighter...the smocking is aimed at making boob-allowance for nice snug fit for 'normal' ladies it seems, and since I have nonorks there is a tiny bit too much give...
It's like there is 4-6inches too much fabric in centre back/waist
