Wardrobe Wednesday: A Handmade Skinny Dress

I'm starting to fit into my skinny clothes again!

:D :D :D

For example:


I made this pretty plaid dress in April of 2009.  I was 4 months pregnant with Lane and I was still thinner than I have been.  Gah!

Kind of embarrassing.



Here I am wearing this dress in April 2009.  Yup, that is a serious baby bump.


I had to put it away for a few years.  But I finally had the guts to try it on again.

And ta da!


It fits!


I still have to fix the back.  It broke when I was trying to wrench the zipper up on a day where I was clearly too fat to wear it.  :(


Anyway, it's nice to have a new summer dress to wear.


Are you the type that donates clothes when they no longer fit?  I usually am.  I don't want to see my "thin" clothes cluttering up my storage and reminding me of how big I've gotten.  But when I took so much time to handmake this particular dress, I felt compelled to keep it.   I'm glad I did!  What a great feeling it was to have the zipper zip up without struggle.
