The before shot of Carla's piece just really sold this whole ensemble - see how adorable she is!!
This dress was something I found buried deep in the recesses of my older sister's closet. I actually don't think she knew she had this dress - it even had a smell that would make thrift store shoppers cringe!
It's never been worn, but she assures me she got this brand new at a sale in a local store for about P200 (that's around 5 dollars!)
I love the contrary sister discussion. Hmm, funky smell yet brand new?? I'm going with Carla!! Check out what she does!
One of the main reasons why I had to recreate this dress was the middle.
I like to say that it was ill-fitting and flows around my flabs...and not in a good way!!
I love tea dresses and I love florals, so I have to admit, my eyes kind of sparkled at the possibilities.
Fit has always been one of the hardest things for a plus size girl like me, and that's one of the reasons why I fell in love with this dress immediately when it was done!
Carla just took her new shortened top and paired it with her new shortened bottom to make a chic little tea dress that fits her to a T!! (Yeah, had to go with both tea/T versions. It just doesn't happen all too often, so I took advantage!)
I love this Carla - you are glowing! Beautiful color, beautiful fit, beautiful girl. Have so much fun wearing this and I can't wait to see what else you come up with next!
