Don't misunderstand - if ever a well-fitting version of this dress appears, perhaps by someone like House of Foxy, I will be first in line to upgrade. In the meantime, there are a few tweaks I can make to help it fit better. The lining in the top has to go - that's what's creating weird wrinkles across the bust, as it's not stitched down fully. Also, you can see my belt here slipping down a bit - I have a wider belt that I can wear in future that will work better. As for the too-short length, I can wear flats instead of heels to help that out a bit.
The rest of the outfit is pretty imperfect too - I love those shoes, but they're not the most comfortable. I bought the bag thinking it was leather, and it's not. The brooch has a stone missing. All of these little not-quite right issues. I don't mind, because if I waited for something perfect, I'd never buy anything!
Are you determined to wear something you love that doesn't fit properly? Too big dresses or too small shoes?
