I bought this dress about a year ago but it never really fit properly. And then when I recently lost some weight, it was just hanging on me like a shapeless thing with no shape. I thought it was too pretty to give up on so I took it to a tailor to have it altered. I bought it from eShakti so it didn't cost much so it seemed like it was worth the money to have it taken in.

It was a nice dress to wear today since it was -19C. Long sleeves are the best thing on a cold day.
I'd like this dress even more if the design was also on the back of the dress. It's a little strange that it isn't embroidered all the way around.
Channeling my inner ballerina. I think I need to invest in a crinoline that can be worn underneath this big circle skirt. I bet I can find one at Pretty Things Boutique.
Along with having this dress taken it, I also had the cross front on bodice tacked down. When you're small of chest this style of dress doesn't always fit like it should. Much better now.
I had lots of options for shoes to wear with this dress. (Ok, ok....I have a lot of shoes period). Just about any colour goes well with it but I thought I'd wear these unique flats that I bought in Paris last June. They're handmade, one of a kind - quite a lucky find.
I think that they look like (evil) rabbits but maybe they're supposed to be foxes? Either way, they aren't out of place in a garden of flowers.
