I can no longer wear cinch in the waist dresses. There. The cat is out of the bag.
What do I do when I get a dress that’s no longer flattering in my 10 more pounds heavy body? Rework, redo and restyle! Here’s how:
Flip the dress inside out. Find the seam where the original elastic was inserted and sewn in. Undo about an inch of the sewn waist band, wide enough to pull out the elastic.
The dress can be worn loose when around the house. Or you can redo by inserting a longer elastic. You can polish the look by wearing a belt and a matching accessories like a necklace.
Got an old dress you love but no longer fit you. You can easily redo it like I did. Don’t forget to share with me the final look either on Instagram or Twitter : @_audreyisms .
