trying to figure out some sacai kind of move that i can do to make them fit me now- like inserting panels on the sides or in the back somehow...
unfortunately, that isnt cheap.

i recently bought a size 38 IT giambattista valli skirt for a steal. it ran even smaller.
i took it to my tailor and they made it bigger. (i think they took material from the bottom or perhaps the material in the hem (tucked inward) i think i paid around 60 bucks. you cant tell at all that the garment was altered.

another time i had a an XS marios schwab dress made bigger. its a bit obvious in the back where they made it bigger by adding panels (by the zipper) i think i paid around 40 bucks for that.

maybe if you shop around bit maybe you can find a tailor that will give you a good deal.

40 bucks sounds fine...it's a lot of work and it means i have a whole new dress...
sounds like a bargain to me...

:p

i have finally found someone i trust to do this kind of thing, so i'm trying to get as many things done as possible while i have him and before he gets busy with other stuff...
