Ok, first, I love birds. I envy them because they can fly and I cannot (without use of some dangerous man-made device, that is).
So while shopping at Goodwill for fabric to make my next batch of skirts out of, I found this adorable dress. With birds on it! And with a train down the back! The down side is that it is a size 6. With a zipper. Which makes it incredibly hard for me to make a skirt out of, even if I just hacked it off under the ribcage band. Plus, that would ruin the effect of the train.
I'm having a difficult time trying to cut into this little dress, even if it would make a cute skirt. I think it's just fine as a dress, but as it is, it does not and will not ever fit me. The last time I could wear a size 6, I was 6 (I was a very tall child). So it's doing me no good hanging on my dressform, mocking me, whispering to me at night "Ha ha, I'm so cute and you can't wear me!"
