What I Wore Wednesday
This is a new skirt. It used to be a dress. Do you want to see?
The dress itself wasn't too bad, but those triangle boob holders were total boob squishers. Most unflattering. And then the triangles were flappy at the top. I challenge the designers to find anyone who would fit that shape! Maybe someone completely flat-chested, with large elevated pecs... Who knows. Anyway, I wore it a lot despite the boob flatteners before it dawned on me that I could so easily turn it into a skirt. It was so easy it's practically cheating. I cut off the boob flatteners and left the wide waistband. I folded the waistband in half and sewed it down. There's a zip at the back which I also folded in half and carefully sewed the folded bits to each side, so I could still pull the zip up. Super easy! Now I even wear it to work, which I never did with the dress.
