I bought this from Ebay just after I arrived in the UK. I love the fabric and from the boobs down it is fine, but it's always been a horror story from the boobage up. I have tried different length straps, different strap positions (it was briefly a halter neck) and still it was flappy, too revealing and just wrong.
Then I decided for this challenge I would try to make this work, or resign it to be a very large dish-cloth. Or cut the top off and make it a skirt.
So, here is my attempt. Firstly I decided it needed something under it to hide where it doesn't cover my bra, or my lady-lumps. I liked the mesh sleeves on this top and the detailing sort of hides the horror story of the top bit.
Dress - Next
Top - Ann Harvey
Shoes - Havaianas
My innocent booby look
And then I thought, let's just hide the top entirely. Bad ass(ish) look:
Dress as above
Jacket - Evans (from fat swap)
And probably my fav look, although I don't like this jacket really and I have bought another denim jacket because of that. Seeing the two together, I think this works.
So, has the dress redeemed itself? I think so. I think I will wear it this summer, probably with a substantial vest top either under or over it (to make it into a skirt) and with a jacket (and given the current weather layering is the best way to go!!!!!!).
