Happy Saturday everyone! I know I don't usually post on the weekends, but I was just in the mood to blog. Last week I was able to attend a baby shower in Utah for one my good friend/little sis Maddie. Remember her wedding?! Gorg! Post here. She is seriously the cutest pregnant girl I have ever seen, and I can't wait to be back in Utah at the end of June for her to deliver. I got this dress in from Rachel Parcell's new clothing line that I knew would be perfect for the shower. I ordered it a couple weeks before the shower since I wasn't familiar with the sizing of the line, and wanted to make sure that "if" alterations were needed they would be done in time. When I got the dress in the mail I immediately fell in love with the print! Killer job Rach! I ripped open my box, and tried it on immediately. When evaluating myself in the mirror the dress was huge on my body from the ribcage down. What surprisingly fit (this is usually the deal breaker if I return or not because it becomes super expensive to alter) was the upper body. I'm narrow in the shoulders, and the dress fit perfectly along my shoulders and chest. There was hope that I could take it in to get tailored. When I strutted into my tailor with the dress in hand my tailor Phil immediately gasps "No Edmunds, not another dress!"
Phil you know you love me.... We have a loving sarcastic relationship lol. I'm more of the loving, and he's more of the sarcastic.
I put on the dress, and Phil immediately starts pinning away. He took in about 6 inches around the waist, and 4 inches within the hips. Since I am shorter we took the skirt up about 2 inches. Dresses and skirts that hit me below the knee aren't the most flattering on my body type. While he continued pinning he was worried about the final fit since the dress doesn't stretch. I reassured him "Phil, you know you are the best in the west!"
When I came back a week later the dress fit like a dream! I was so happy that Phil once again worked his magic for me. Make sure you check out Rachel Parcell's line because it is absolutely gorgeous! Proud of you Rach! Way to follow your dreams babe! XOXO
