This week I adjusted a wedding dress for a friend.
It made me think of a great rule for a successful relationship.
The dress needed to be taken up a full inch on the shoulder.
At first glance, I thought that just can't work without
redesigning the neckline & armhole.
The lining was a stretch knit.
The lace was not stretch but was lacy enough it have some natural stretch.
So I pinned to see what it would do.
Stretching was going to distort too much,
but it caused the other side to gather a bit.
I tried a hand running stitch to see how it would gather.
So by hand stitching slowly I guided the shoulders to work together.
The back softly gathered to fit the front.
It had me thinking how in a relationship
has to give a little.
Think about it.
