SAY HELLO TO MY NEW
CHRISTMAS DRESS OBSESSION!
I just loved the D&G vibes of this floral dress so much, so when I saw it online I decided to take a chance on it! The dangers of online shopping, is that you don't know how it will fit your body and it can also be really difficult to figure out your size as it depends on the fit and brand.
This dress turned out to be too straight and a bit too wide in the top part for my body type. However, when you have sewing skills, that's not really a problem. I took in the arms, sides of the top, and the waist. The I used the extra fabric it came with (intended as a scarf) as a belt to enhance the waist even more, without making it too tight for comfort.
This dress went from ill-fitted, to my one of my favourite dresses in no time, as was actually a really quick fix. After I switched to sustainable fashion, every new purchase is intended for multifunction and a lot of reuse. I have a feeling this dress will be a part of many festive occasions from now on.
Happy Holidays and best wishes to all, from IDEALIST STYLE and Friday (my cat). Xxx
