wedding outfit needed for mid june

(37 Posts)

I ordered this for a wedding in a 10, and it looks like I am wearing a tent, so have reordered in a smaller size, but think the 8 will still not be fitted enough, and the 6 will be too small (am usually a 10). Any alternative suggestions ? Don't want to spend much at all (don't really want to go), and want o be able to wear it again. Nothing past mid calf either.

Thanking you

do u know anyone handy with a sewing machine, it'd be easy enough to make more figure hugging, as long as there is a good access - buttons/zip, so u can still get it on

Nice dress Lou.

I just bought this jaipur skirt and top from Monsoon. The top and skirt don't come up but type in Jaipur in Monsonn and you'll see.

nice skirt tc, but too expensive for me

How about a Hennes? They do great dresses and arevery affordable.

I'm having the same problem - only have the one special occasion dress, but it's now too big.
