I didn't quite understand what the designer was thinking when making this dress. This is too small and not so flattering for a plus size but enormous and shapeless for a petite. Even for somebody with the "standard" measures... it was just awkward.
Fashion Designers: this is why you need to actually know about fabrics and cuts!
And don't even make me start with the fins and the neckline... please don't!. The only good thing about this dress was the color, so I put myself to work as soon as I could.
At this point I had a nice simple summer dress, with a fresher and better look. The only additional think I had to adjust was the neckline, it was to wide and open for my so I sewed some centimeters in each shoulder.
Tried on again and looked just fine. Just fine... just plain fine [sigh]
Finished the ruffles with some nice gold studs. You know me, I love decorating my clothes.
And that was my fishy refashion tale!. I know I'm not a mermaid but at least, I kept my human shape with this dress.
