Edit Width in Sharepoint 2013 List Columns (New & Edit)

This seems very simple, but all of the how-to's I have found online show either customizing the view of a list, or converting and using SPD 2010, which in this case is not an option for me.  

Since SPD 2013 does not have the ability to simply go to design view and edit the field width of a list column, I have to use .CSS.  I've poked around the file and it's huge and overwhelming, especially considering I know next to nothing about it.

Is there a way to edit this field width?  We aren't using InfoPath to create new forms because of the costs associated and I am creating this with the vanilla master pages.  I'm able to change most of the form's look HTML, but the fields aren't editable it seems.

Any help would be appreciated!!

This would be much easier with SPD.

I am using SPD 2013, however, SPD 2010 will not open a Sharepoint 2013 site because of the incompatibility.  Statically settings the table row has no effect on the field, therefore the row does not accept the parameters I give it.
