|I'm thinking view A, minus the huge sash|
Oh and can someone please explain to me how in the world I can wear a size 16 in one store but walk into another store and wear a size 24? I know I'm fluffy but please - there is no way I expanded walked 50 feet down the mall!! I have no delusions of being a size 2 - and no desire to be - but I know ding dang good and well that I should be able to try on one size in one store and then go to a different store to try on clothes in the same size and have them fit.
Anyway, since the fashion industry completely failed - I'm making my own dress. I went to JoAnn Fabrics after taking Peanut to school today and found a pattern that I liked, a material that I love and all the notions. I even got a bonus pattern and two bags for less than the price of one of those slutty numbers I despised. I think that it was $38 well spent - plus, I can reuse the pattern for more dresses and I have a dresser with remnants in there... no telling what I could create!
So thank you fashion houses - because of you, my sewing machine is going to get some well deserved use this summer. Wish me luck.
