Every now and then I like to give myself a mini challenge where I force myself to wear something that has been languishing in my closet. You see this particular dress is actually much longer  and unfortunately when I wear it at its full length I feel awkward. I just feel that the proportions are all off for me.

So, after playing with it for a bit I remember seeing Audi do some amazing things with shifting dresses around and securing them with belts. I thought what the hell and after a few minutes of playing I stumbled across this particular outfit.  While I really loved the colour combination and was happy with the length of the dress it was a bit uncomfortable throughout the day. I was always worried it was going to shift or pull down.

The good news for me though is that it has inspired me to alter the dress so that I can wear it at around this length, maybe a bit longer to be honest, but make it feel much more secure.  Now I just have to wait for Gary’s office to be fixed so he can move his computer from my sewing table.  My sewing pile is growing all the time!
