Another day, another rediscovered dress...
I hadn't forgotten about this Beatrix Potter dress exactly. You can't really forget that Peter Rabbit is living in your wardrobe, can you? It's more that it was lurking in the sad end of my wardrobe with the size 12 dresses that sort of fitted at one point and now definitely don't fit. It's worth trying them on every now and then though, just to see if they surprise you.
This did! Ok, it could do with being a bit less tight over my dreaded lower stomach area but at some point in my life I need to stop caring about that. It ain't going away without a tummy tuck. I did have to do a bit of a mincey wiggle around the office all day due to the fit of it but that's probably partly due to the style. I never wear shift dresses so I'm not used to having my legs confined like that.
It's been almost two years since I last blogged it and considering I haven't dieted since then, I don't think the fit looks that much different. Bit tighter, yes, but if a handmade shift dress still fits you then things aren't too bad.
