mad maid style

When I ordered my bridesmaid dress for my sister's wedding back in November, I had it cut for the size I was wearing then. By the time it arrived at the end of April, my measurements had changed quite a bit, and the dress was literally falling off of me:


So last week I took it to our uniform shop here on base to be altered, and I picked it up yesterday, minus several inches of fabric on the sides:


My husband was very verbally appreciative of my mad maid style. Even my future brother-in-law said it looked sexy.

(Don't worry; I love my BIL, but not like that.)

To add to my success story, I was also able to fit into a sundress that I haven't been able to zip up for years. I have an extra-special use in mind for that little number (you'll just have to wait and see).

Summer is here, and I couldn't be more ready for it.
