Featured: How to Take in a Sweater

I find a lot of store bought sweaters (especially inexpensive ones) lack shape. They’re boxy. And that lack of shape is what makes the difference between polished and sloppy. It is amazing what a little waist nip can to for a sweater, so I was super excited to find this tutorial from Adventures in Dressmaking demonstrating how to alter a sweater! Check it out!
