I’m not the first person to talk about gussets and I don’t pretend to know it all but I figured out two alterations I could do on woven buttondowns to make them fit me better. Yes, we’re talking off the rack stuff.
One alteration should be pretty simple and quick to do while the second, the one including gussets, will take a little more of your attention.
Go check out my tutorial on Hourglassy and say hi while you’re there. You can also ask me a question and I’ll answer it in blog post form. Just email me at AskLeila@hourglassy.com with any of your big bewb fit and alteration questions.
