I purchased suit jackets, but the straight cut of the body makes me look larger. I need to taper the side seams at the waistline for a more fitted and professional look. What is the best way to do this without having a “pull” on the buttons? Should I create a new side seam? If so, what is the best way to measure for this? Would narrow elastic stretched and sewn horizontally at the waistline (on the inside) maybe 3-4″ long work for thinner fabrics?
Thank you, in advance, for your help! It is much appreciated! I know I can count on you! You help in the past was immeasurable!
