Inbetweeny- Looking for a tailor

Sometime last month I was looking for a cute top to wear to a graduation. I’d been eyeing this Elie Tahari number in Bloomingdale’s but was not going to pay the $90+ original price. It was finally marked down as part of a sale they were having so I decided to try it on.  Alas it was not meant to be. The extra small fit a little too close and the small was gaping too much in the front and too loose in the back. I’m wearing the extra small in the pic. The sales person at first suggested I go with the extra small. I told her I wouldn’t be able to gain a pound or do any excessive hugging at the graduation. She then suggested I get the small and have someone take in the back and adjust the front. Umm no. Although I loved the print and the colors and it was priced as it should have been from the beginning  and it was on sale I left it. I’ve made that mistake in the past of buying something and telling myself I would get it adjusted. What always ended up happening was that it would sit in the closet unworn. I’ve been on the hunt for a good tailor for years.   

Maybe I should just take up sewing 🙂
