Anyone can do this. You don’t need any skill, just this advice: make sure the safety pin is vertical. That may not make sense right now. But trust me, and later on it’ll make sense.
See, I learned this the hard way. I had a solo in a fourth of July event at my church years ago. So to be patriotic, I went to the thrift store and bought a long navy blue skirt to go with a red over white tank top I was going to wear. But what I didn’t realize was that this skirt had a slit in it that went all the way up to the middle of my thigh! Yeah, very modest. And for church of all things. So how I fixed it was that, while not wearing the skirt, I used a million gold safety pins on the inside to keep it together. But I put them in horizontally. So the next morning, as I was walking up the stairs to the stage to do a sound check, I found, to my horror, that the skirt was splitting just the same, but worst now because there were all the gold safety pins inside to accentuate the split. Yeah. I spent the entire morning pinching the slit together and trying not to walk so much so that it wouldn’t spread apart again. Every time I walked on stage to sing, I was trying to subtly pinch it together again. It was an absolute pain. So yeah. Vertical pins, vertical.
See what I mean about the baggy armpits in this dress? I have it pinned in the after shot, along with the belt. But since the armpits (or, maybe I should call it “sleeves.” Armpit sounds a little crude . . it just doesn’t make sense since there are no sleeves. . . huh. I’ll think about that later. Anywho) they’re really low. Not to mention the neckline is lower since I unbuttoned the one button and tucked it into the collar, so I put a white cami on underneath. Modest is hottest; also, the most comfortable. And note how you can’t tell there’s pins in either dress. =-) I bet you’re excited to try your own, huh?
