a good tailor goes a long way

Taking a vintage piece that's too long or too baggy to a tailor is an inexpensive way ($5-$40, depending on how much you want to alter) to own a custom-fit and often one-of-a-kind garment. Here's proof:

Charlotte bought this dress from Dovetail (it used to be Julie's mom's!!) and took it to a tailor to remove six inches from the bottom so that it rests above her knee. Lovely!
