A Quick Money Making Project

I was checking out a local buy & sell page on Facebook and found a lady that needed a dress altered pretty fast.  We messaged each other and Saturday she brought over the dress.
This is the dress her 13 yr old needs for a pageant this next weekend.  The bodice needed to be taken in on the sides about an inch.
Here it is 3 hours later.  
I opened up the lining side seams. Then tacked down the beads and sequins near the edge of the seam because I had to remove some.  Because of the beads I needed to hand stitch the new seam and then stitch the lining seams by hand also.

An enjoyable 3 hours for me and I get paid, I hope she wins!
