I'm short and fat but need quirky dress to wear to wedding - please help!
There's a leopard print merino skater-style dress in the Hobbs outlet that looks lovely and is under £70 but knit might be a little unforgiving round the middle. It has a scoop neck which looks v flattering though.
Try www.getcutie.co.uk it's a small company based in Brighton they have a shop on E Bay or order from their own store. I have bought two skirts and a dress from them. Very well made and some fantastic retro styles and material.
Agreed about Get Cutie, but do check the sizing very carefully. Tey use vintage patterns which means sizes are not as you expect, and the boob area, in particular, can be pretty unforgiving because if is so structured.
Fantastic designs and fabrics though! Sure you'll find fabulously quirky!
The dolores are generous imo. I bought a 16-my size-but I think I could have got away with a 14 as it is a bit loose on the bust. Incredibly flattering though-I am planning on wearing mine with my red petticoat,a red waist cincher belt and red shoes.
They have quite a bit of stretch too them but enough weight in the cotton to hang well. . I am waiting on delivery of another one!
