Ok, so I have this dress that I'm supposed to wear in a couple of weeks, it's brand new, my size, and at a fantastic discount due to "small fabrication errors", I looked at it in the store, couldn't see what was wrong then so I just grabbed it.
When I took it out today (and put it on, which I failed to do at the store) I noticed it...
...a pulled thread (of whatever it's called) smack down the front bottom of my dress. Considering the time is short (and so is money), I'd really like to rescue it somehow...and no, trying to crochet it back doesn't work, I tried :(
I thought about finding some ribbon and attaching it over the "hole"...but that's about it, any ideas?
Please look past the fact that it's a huge ugly dress, it's the only one that fits :P and I have to wear it to a wedding this weekend.
I have no idea how to accessorize it since it looks pretty busy already, but with no accessories it seems rather bland...please help!
I've got a nice top with a pattern similar to this one http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_npjnG8dYNgc/SYpNfXxT2FI/AAAAAAAAAIc/UZRE3MvImYI/s400/black+damask.jpg and I have no idea how to accessorize it for a friend's wedding.
Wow, thank you Pamela, you're my newest savior! I also thought about control underwear or whatever they're called, problem is I can't really breathe in those things, I tried a size bigger and they're not really controlling anything, so I'll just try to work with what I got.
Bling I love, and there will be some, not too much, I don't want to be the crazy disco ball lady, but definitely some rhinestones on earrings and necklace will make their way into the outfit.
I guess I'm fine with arms and legs, as long as I don't have to show too much of them. Knee-length has always worked for me, but I have nothing against any type of sleeve either.
I'll definitely try to find something similar to that dress you showed me, I don't have the model's boobs, but I'll see what I can find.
Monika, I think your idea is great too, maybe something with a print will help camouflage all my wrong curves :D
Thanks, girls, as soon as that paycheck comes in, I'm going shopping!
Ever since I gave birth to my daughter 2 years ago my tummy has looked 6 months pregnant, I tried exercising, dieting (for a short short while, I admit) but it's still big. I'm a cup B, so no matter what I wear, my belly is my most prominent feature.
I'm invited to a friend's wedding in a couple of weeks and I'm desperate for some help, I really don't want to tell everyone "I'm not pregnant again, I'm just fat" all night long.
Please help :((
I mean this one, but bigger http://crossstitcher.themakingspot.com/sites/crossstitcher.themakingspot.com/files/migrated/xst189.doctorwho.jpg
Do any of you have it? Please, I'd love to sew this but I can't make it out from that chart alone :((
Ok, I'm chubby - and most of my fat lies in my thighs and belly so women's pants rarely fit, but men's pants are quite ok.
The trouble with them is that they have that annoying bulge in the front, do you have any idea how to get rid of it?
