A little nip…a little tuck

I have this Mexican flour sack dress and I wear it even though it swallows me up whole. I wear it because it makes me feel like a designer and artist…which I am, of course. But it sort of makes me look the part. Every time I wear my flour sack, people stop me to tell me they like it and the other day a friend said: “you look like the definition of summer.” My husband has never been a fan of my flour sack and he was right–it was just too boxy and big. That is…until today. Now, he says it is really pretty. It was just a rectangle before, so I took it in all the way from the sleeves to the hem to create a more feminine shape. And I created a more flattering neckline. And you know what? Because of this dress, I ate watermelon for dinner and cucumbers with lime juice. I swear I can hear faint castanets even as I am typing this. And doesn’t everything just look better with an Anthro belt? (after)
