In your hands - so dress this doll for a wedding please.
Okay, so I'm not Barbie. I might be blonde but I haven't got her boobs.
I've gone through the wardrobe but nothing will do. The wedding is in a couple of weeks, registry office in the morning followed by champagne wedding breakfast somewhere posh (I'm the guest of the groom's brother/witness).
I'm size 12, 5 foot 4, much prefer cotton/linen/silk. I'm too old for anything too short (not that a wedding would be the place for a miniskirt, obv), happy with calf length but can't stand maxi dresses. Am generally to be found in either jeans and t-shirts or tailored skirt/trouser suits.
So, can anyone come up with any ideas please? Thank you.
Oh I love the champagne one, Tiny, and like the blue and white shift too. I have to avoid man made fibres combined with tighter fits though so that counts out the champagne dress. I had surgery a few years back which screwed up my internal temperature guage and now I just get a rush of unbearable heat if I wear something like that.
Don't mind what I show off except midriff (I'm mid 40s so have to disguise that bit these days!). Greens, turquoise, deep pinks, black and cherry red (not bright red, ugh!) suit me or so I'm told.
