I had forgotten about this dress until my beautiful friend Olivia messaged me and asked me for sizing advice as she was planning on buying a similar one from ASOS.
When I put it on I remembered that the last time I wore it I wanted to hack the bottom off it and make it a little shorter. I also remembered thinking the sleeves were too long as well. It’d be a shame to shorten them because you’d loose some of the print, but meh…it’s gotta happen. You cant really see in the picture below but the back hem is longer and I really don’t like it.
I cant sew for shit so i’ll have to take it to my alterations lady. She’s super nice though and her prices are reasonable and her work is spot on.
I really recommend that you find a tailor/seamstress that you can trust and that you have a good relationship with. Eileen, knows me inside out and knows what I mean when I say I want the “dress length to be a bit more slaggy” or “this is too booby, away with the boobiness”
I teamed the shirt dress with my rose gold brogues, stacked bangles, chunky necklace and goldy/bronzey makeup.
