I have finished a few items from the minor-alterations-pile.
Indian tunic. I took it in at the sides, removed most of the decoration at the neckline og shortened it.
Hugo Boss silk shirts. A size too small. I wanted them to still be figure hugging, but in my size. I added a piece of lace elastic to the back of both. I cut the lace 1 cm shorter than the back.
A wrap blouse. I cut the fronts from the opposite sides and sewed them to their "own" sides in stead = cardigan.
Too dark pictures, unfortunately. But the before dress had frills and lace and sleeves and lace on top of frills. I removed everything down to the core dress.
