  • Oh my gosh, Imogen, you answered my question! Thank you so much! I’m excited to go through my summer clothes and weed out, alter, add detailing to tops, etc. to make them more flattering. I’ve always loved wearing dresses for “dressy” or “work” situations but hesitated to wear casual dresses. I don’t go sleeveless and rarely find good casual dresses with flattering sleeves. But using your tips, I can sew some up and use your blog tips on angled short sleeves. I’m excited to look for some fabric and make lots of casual summer dresses! You are the best. 🙂
