Alterations help, please!

bamasueJune 17, 2007

Hi everyone! I'm new here and could surely use your help on a couple things. First, I have the old flat derriere therefore baggy pants problem and just can't seem to successfully either alter patterns or attempt to alter ready mades. Can you direct me to some easy help? Also, I have a washable linen skirt. Am I better off having it dry cleaned or should I take a chance that it won't shrink and go ahead and give it a try. It is a ready made. Thanks for your advice!
