I'm in a fix, I just returned my prom dress for a smaller size because I lost weight since I bought it. I love the dress and style but I now realize that the spaghetti straps and binding need to be longer. It's a low back dress so the straps are a must. It's a taffeta dress and the straps are made of the same fabric and color (rolled really thin.) Is there anything that I/my Mom (we both sew) can do without risking ruining the straps or have them break before I even get to the dance? Help!!

I have a bunch of suits that my Great Aunt had made for her. Also hats and blouses to match. My Great Aunt was born in 1905...very prim and proper...never wore pants/slacks in her life! What would you suggest about selling them? Auction? Advertisement? I would appreciate any advice you have to offer.

I love to design my own clothes, especially dresses. It's just for fun, but maybe one day I'll do something with it. The only problem is that I can't sketch the dresses without the outline of a person to draw them on. Is there anything I can buy that has the outline of a person so I can draw the clothes?

I have my belly-button pierced and low-rise pants that don't bother it. The problem is I have several pairs of higher waist jeans. I know it's possible to remove the waistband of jeans with zippers but I'd like to know how.
