Dress: Dream Diva
Shrug: City Chic
Leggings: My Size
I bought this dress to wear on New Years Eve and loved it, but all night long the boning in the sides were cutting in under my underarms and being generally very annoying.
They didn’t seem to be doing any actual good – the dress pretty much held itself up anyway – so I got my trusty sewing scissors and did a bit of impromptu dress surgery.
The “bones” were just little strips of plastic, and the edges were cut straight, which explains why the corners were so damn prickly – without them the dress is very comfortable and, teamed with a shrug, I can even wear it with a bra… mmnnnn…. practical….
