And by "big girl", I DO mean size. Here's a reminder of what I looked like wearing B5029:
Now that picture was taken 6-8 weeks ago and I have actually lost 5 lbs (and had my hair cut) since then but I assure you, that picture made me look WAY bigger than I think I am. I wore it once and felt so self-conscious that it got stuck back in the closet. I kept thinking about it and decide I would re-do it with a flat lower bodice to see if it looked better.
So this is what the dress looked like yesterday morning:
And voila! Today, it looks like this:
Still not my favorite dress (probably because I'm sick of looking at it!!) but at least I will wear it now. It took me at least twice as long to disassemble and re-assemble than it took to make it the first time.
