Awhile back I posted about these purple Old Navy pants that had totally stretched out after a few wears and I was asking for help with shrinking them back down. Well, I tried washing them with super hot water and then blasting them in the dryer, but it only made them super crispy, and the next time I wore them, they immediately stretched right back out.
I used my sewing machine to slim the legs and now they fit so much better! I just sewed a straight line down the inside of the legs. There was more than an extra inch of fabric in the inner thighs and it was creating this really awkward and ugly bunching. Much better now!
And this polka dot top was originally had a really high neckline that looked like I was wearing the shirt backwards, but since it was only like $5, I decided to bring it home and alter the neckline myself to a lower scoop neck. My 3-year old loves to "help" me sew, so I let him step on the pedal while the machine was set to the slowest stitch. There was a lot of "STOP STOP STOP STOP!!!! STEP OFF THE PEDAL!!!" shouting involved, but the neckline turned out alright I guess. Not professional by any means, but it works for me. After seeing these pictures though, I might slim the sides a little bit so it's not so boxy and wide. Probably when my kid is sleeping though.
