I tried on my newly repaired gown and realized I should have done two things before taking it to the seamstress:
1. Check to see if it needs to be hemmed. It should have been. Even in high heels, it still drags on the floor a bit.
2. Check to see if it still fit! I have gained weight since I purchased it a year or so ago. I barely fit into it. I was afraid, for a while there, I wouldn't be able to zip it up.
Even with a tight fit and a bit too long, the gown is STUNNING. Wowza. I can't wait to go to the ball!
