Altering size 10 top to size 8
I am generally much more active on kitchen and gardening forums but it's my first time posting on sewing forum.
I recently received a top with size 10, when I typically wear a size 8. The store has sold out on my size and I do not want to return it (the gift has a sentimental value attached to it).
Therefore, I am wondering if it is possible for me to easily alter it to size 8. Specifically, what areas will need changing? For example, will I need to fix arm hole size or will it be only around waistline?
I will likely get it professionally altered but wanted to get some expert advice regardless.
Thanks in advance!
