DW brought me a dress that she wants **altered/modified**.
The pullover dress has a ... (hope i get this correct )
Drapped v-neck bodice with a gathered mock wrap that ends at
the waist seam. The bodice is attached to a knee length skirt.
The waist has a small band between bodice and skirt. Dress is
DW does not like the drapped v-neck mock wrap (finished nursing
for a long while now). DW says it gapes open and fits poorly in
the front. Pinning or tacking the drape makes other un-sightly
and un-comfortable problems. She wanted me to adjust the bodice
*BUT* after many different pinnings and adjustments to the
drape/wrap we can not seem to get an acceptable fit.
Now for the help ?
So, i suggested it might be easier to just change the style of
the dress ? maybe change the drapped bodice wrap into something
like a v-neck shirt dress style bodice ? maybe adorn with some
mock buttons etc..
does this sound possible ?
any problems with this idea ?
any other suggestions ?
thanks as always for any helpful advice.
