I got a gorgeous top from Freeda's purge pile last year, but I was having a lot of trouble with the fit around the hips. I asked my lovely readers for suggestions, but it didn't work out. So I finally broke out the big guns and took it to the tailor:
She thought it best to keep the band, so she just cut out some of the fabric in the middle. It now drapes so much better on me:
This whole short-waisted combined with big-bootyed sure is expensive!
At least some other bargains lessen the sting:
And ye olde faithful:

FYI: I was doing this entire blog from my Android phone, snatching moments out of my busy life for quick photos. But I hate auto-correct with a purple passion, so now I'm using the computer for most of the work. I am still using my phone for the photos, though. My photo sizes may be erratic, and the quality isn't stellar. I am not a professional blogger, and do not have time for lots of scenic poses with a great camera. I don't even own a great camera! However, I DO appreciate your continued feedback, even in the absence of photographic artistry.
