I've spent the last two evenings altering summer dresses (hope springs eternal) to fit the slimmer me. Take out the sleeves, take in the side seams, recut the sleeves and re-attach. The dresses are ethnic/indian style and fabric - that crinkly stuff - so further weight loss won't be a problem unless it's massive, which is unlikely. But you never know.

At least fashion allows you to skip making the things longer or shorter. Thank Heaven, we are no longer obliged to wear a given length.

True, Brenda C. And it's just as well, as I'm resurrecting stuff which is over ten years old. Always liked it, grew out of it, and am determined to wear it again. Which is why, having shrunk out of some much-loved gear, I'm doing the alterations.

I've also shrunk out of some stuff which I had shrunk into just before Christmas. Commercially made blouses which I really like. More alterations to come....
