I picked up this dress at Thrift Town last week for 3 dollars. It is several sizes too big, but by adding a belt, it fits! I may or may not get it taken in. I have a pile of pieces that need alterations and I am afraid my bill is going to end up being quite hefty. Why pay someone to fix it when I can just belt it myself? I could bust out my sewing machine and do it myself, but I feel like that will never happen. Do you fix your own pieces or take them to the tailor?
