+ The benefit of buying an oversized dress and how to take it in tutorial

Have you noticed that the higher the dress size, the longer it is? I will purposefully buy a bigger size for the length of the dress and sometimes the lowering of the waistline. You can transform a bigger dress into something completely different from it’s original in a smaller size by simply taking it in! An example of taking in a dress with tutorial HERE.


  1. I love it! I always think of buying a bigger dress to make it long enough. The only problem is… I can’t sew.
    I love the shoes. Where did you get them?

  2. What a brilliant idea! Dresses in my regular size are usually too short and the waist often hits me in a funny non-flattering place too.


  3. That is what I have been doing to three dresses that I have thrifted months ago and they were just not flattering at all so had to take them in. You look lovely! Love that dress! I gotta find me something similar. :) LOve! Love!

  4. I do that for my daughter all the time! lol. We will fall in love for a dress for her and the size 5 will be totally prostitot so I move her up to a six or even a seven and take it in as it needs it. I don’t know if my kiddo is leggier than other kids or if I just have more of a problem with seeing so much skin on my kindergartener than most, but there we have it!

  5. I do this all the time and people call me crazy! I love the stripes; so glad this style is in now!

  6. Lovely! I do this too! I’m so glad I found your blog. I am lovin it:)

  7. I love it you did a great job.

  8. yay! i just bought a button up at a thrift store thats a bit too big and now i know how to fix it! thank you!

  9. When folks refer to this particular strategy, things i need to say is the particular sexy Scarlett Johansson and also the louis vuitton man bag Monogrammed Jeans louis vuitton man bag Neo Cabby Millimeters Tote. The woman’s us platinum red locks louis vuitton man bag and also languorous louis vuitton man bag poses introduced us the greatest femme fatale.

  10. I’m very happy with my Ray Ban Sunglasses. Great quality, and I got them like 10 days earlier than when they were supposed to arrive, which made my purchase even better.
