Yesterday I tried on mil's 45 year old wedding dress - before trying it on we joked it would be too small and she said if it didn't fit dd (2) could have it for dress up.

I tried it on - it didn't fit, took it off, went to do up the zip and a tooth came out and the zip came off.

I got dressed went to tell mil and dd came running by shouting poo mummy so I put it down sorted her out etc and in short left without telling mil I broke it.

What do I do now? I don't think I can phone her and say I broke it forgot to tell you, do I leave it? Ask to look at it again and then "break" it again?

It's really playing on my mind! Also haven't said anything to dp about it sad

I'd just get a new zip put in. Tell you MIL that it broke when you tried the dress on, I expect it was a metal zip, and these can become a bit gungy over time.
Where is the dress now?? is it at your house or not?

Didn't think about getting a new zip!!!

It's at mils house but it would be easy to explain I broke it so got a new one much easier than just saying a few days later smile

She isn't sentimental about it or anything so that's good smile
