I wanted to share this with you. Lately I've discovered a seamstress - I was going to say a new seamstress, new for me, but established for a long time and experienced. And her prices are not too high. She is slowly fixing all my wardrobe so it fits me properly. There were pants I posted about a while ago, but she also re-did a lot of my jeans, not just the length, but the waist, as most of them were too baggy there while tight around the thighs. I didn't expect it would make such a difference! Can you see it?

1 - Skirt and tank before: skirt too long, tank too loose around the waist.
2 - Same skirt and identical tank after. Now I get this skirt! It has been hanging in my closet unworn. I thought it was a mistake and couldn't figure out why. It's like new.
3 - Second skirt and tank before.
4 and 5 - Second skirt and tank after...
6 - Talbots "Signature" jeans before (old 2013 pic). The cut was very straight. I liked them because they were a classic cut, but I thought they tended to look a little matronly on me - in any case, too classic.
6 - Same jeans, same length, but she nipped the waist and it changed the whole garment.

Can you see the difference like I see it? What do you think?
