How to Take In a Dress - What You'll Need
How to Take In a Dress
Sometimes that perfect dress isn't the perfect size. You don't have to be a professional seamstress to fix this problem. Adjust a dress that is too large with these easy instructions.

    What you will need:
  • Measuring Tape
  • Medium sized sewing needle
  • Thread – The thread should closely match the thread previously used in the seam
  • Straight pins
  • Scissors [recommended scissors]
  • (Optional)Seam ripper – Handy if you make mistakes

Gather your supplies, and you're ready to measure to fit.
