Here in the land of Oz, we’re in full end of year ‘senior formal’ frenzy. I think that’s senior prom in the USA? Anyhoo, the purchased dresses have been Facebooked since January lest a lass turn up in the same gown as her frenemy. The boys seem to fearlessly don tuxedos of course and happily, look the same.
Princess’ friend brought her purchased dress around for me to advise on alterations – I have no time to do it for her. This girl is a statuesque red head, gorgeous, boyfriendless – though I cannot understand why? Her plain black dress has bust cups that join below boob level – as is the current trend, this girl has the proportions to carry it off perfectly. She bought a low CF ‘U’ wired bra and asked if the dress could have the CF neckline raised to cover the bra. Hmmm, I pondered. “How much attention do you want?”, “lots” was the reply, so I suggested beading the CF underwire. 1 hour of work stitching random beads in a jar given to me by a friend and the young lady in question is apparently very happy with the result!
