Goldilocks and the Three Dresses (from one)

Once upon a time there was a lovely sale on in Monsoon. The shop was full of pretty dresses and clothes, but one in particular stood out. This dress was perfect. It could be worn to school in the day and yet it would look smart and feel nicer on. It fit perfectly and the fabric was a beautiful colour and weight. A young lady went into the shop and knew that she had to have it.

Unfortunately, the dress was too long.

So she chopped off 5 inches and hemmed it.

Oops, now it was too short.

What could she do?

The lady looked at the pieces she had left. There was the lovely, albeit too short dress and the chopped off hem section.

“Aha!” thought the lady. “I know just what to do. I’ll reattach the hem higher up on the skirt so that it is a bit too wide. That way I can pleat it in place to give it more volume and flounce.

And that is just what she did. She measured 3 inches from the new hem and reattached the bottom section.

This time the dress was just right.

With the addition of a hair band and a bow pin, the lady knew that Blair Waldorf would be proud of this outfit. This made her happy and then she and the dress lived happily ever after.
