What a seamstress wants you to know about clothing alterations;

Most clothing cannot be let out more than 1"
The 1" rule applies to most garments—but some items can't be taken out at all. A seamstress has to see the garment because from garment to garment, the amount of fabric left inside varies. In general, formalwear is far more likely to have a significant amount of fabric available for letting out. In some cases, letting garments out more than an inch by finding matching fabric and adding panels, but this is a lot more work and won't always give you the exact result you're hoping for.

Don't have a dress taken in six sizes. The dress becomes unrecognizable once worked on.
