Here are some things to look for if you plan to buy a dress that needs alterations. Obviously, you can't lengther skirls if the hems are skimpy, or let out seams if there isn't enougl material. However, even if the allowances are wide, look to be sure no clips or slashes have been made into them. Today's illustration shows a clip made too far into the seam allowance to permit letting it out. Avoid fabrics that are permanently marred by stitching lines and pressed creases. Don't buy dresses made of such fabrics if they must be let out, for the original stitching line will show. Some alterations require so much time and skill that it just isn't practical to bother with them. Unless you're absolutely sure that you can do the job perfectly, avoid alterations on shoulder seams, armholes and necklines. Your waist length often determines the styles that can be altered. For instance, the short- waisted woman.who must shorten the bodice of every dress and suit she buys should look for styles with waistline seams. It's almost impossible to alter a princess style or fitted jacket which has no waistline scam to adjust. This style clings to your waistline, causing the upper part of the garment to blouse or bag. Ripping the seams to allow it to fall into place will not work, because the garment is too narrow below the new waistline to go around the hip curve. The long-waisted woman's problem is just the opposite. A dress with a waistline seam is difficult to alter because the chances arc there won't be enough extra fabric in the blouse to allow lengthening. If a princess line or fitted jacket fits well above the waist, it can "easily be altered. All you have to do is take the seams in below the original waistline, forming a new shape to fit your long waisted figure. Avoid alterations that ruin the proportions of a garment. A very obvious example would be a skirt with flounces. You'd have to do a great deal of alteration in each flounce to keep their width in proportion. This is hardly worth the effort. It isn't a great problem to take a dress in, unless it's two or three sizes too large. But, letting a dress out is a different matter. Even a professional dressmaker can't always do it, and, if she can, she'll charge you an arm and a leg for doing it - and rightfully so. Save your money and pass u p j a dress if you have any doubts. It's a crime to take a dress apart, | alter it, and still have it fit badly. Miss Scott is always glad t" hear from her readers, anil whenever possible will use their questions in her column, but because of the grcaf volume of mail received daily, she cannot answer individual letters.
