After much googling to search for some reputable tailor in NYC that can create a miracle out of my McQueen (oh its so much fun to refer to it as mine!), I paid a visit to Ghost Tailor over in the Fashion District.
We had a chat about taking it in to make the dress fit, and shortening the length as well, but most of all, we talked about constructing a long skirt that I can wear over it to turn it into a gown.
Prognosis: promising. And so we scheduled a 2nd meeting for next next week to play with a possible look.
In the meantime, I am quite happy with my duvet skirt 🙂
