Some DB outlets are trimmed away on the facing and hem at the front corner point and cannot be lengthened. If you do have cloth at the hem, you can piece the facing.
Ok, I submit. It CAN be done IF opening the quarters isn't a problem. Wasn't considering that as an option last night.
Damn, I really should stop getting stuck in threads. At least this time, it was a tailor putting me in my place.
Thanks though mr Despos.
