Something else I am going to try with a Verily top I have that is very baggy is to gather it to one side and put an elastic band around a bunch of material to create a little more shape
That’s what we call the Kimtuck Emma https://insideoutstyleblog.com/2015/01/how-to-style-your-loose-tops-with-a-rubber-band-the-kimtuck-revealed.html
Hi, Imogen. I am a sewer ,&, have found that if I change a hemline on a long loose top to diagonal rather than having it as horizontal , it is flattering, &, if it’s lightweight, still very cool to wear! Love your suggestions!
I agree – I’ve been doing a range of sloping, diagonal or curved bottoms on my sewn tops – they look good.
For those of us with an 8 shape, is the half-tuck recommended? I like that it gives more of a hint of waist, but it is nowhere near as high up as my narrowest point falls, if that makes sense…?
your are better with the full tuck to show off your fabulous waist!
Imogen, I guess tugging is nothing for O-shapes, isn’t it?
The tuck or half-tuck are not great for the O shape sadly – generally just stay away from tucking!
