And to top it all off this divine vintage pattern arrived in the post yesterday. I won it on ebay thinking it wouldn't need too much adjustment as I am small in the bust and the skirt is quite full anyway, all the better to hide my pear shape with. I realise now that I have been sadly mistaken when it comes to my measurements. It reminds me of that line from Seinfeld when Elaine says something like 'Is it possible that I am not as attractive as I think I am?'. She says it with such shocked exclamation. How could that possibly be true!!
Well that's me. I suffer from false body image in that I always think I am a size or two smaller than I really am. So now this dress is my motivation. I want to make this dress and I want to LOVE wearing this dress. So my goal is my birthday in december. I want this to be my christmas party season dress and I want to swish around the room in it while sipping a glass of champagne.
Now enough of this body image babble. I am off to hide the chocolate from myself before I forget I am on a diet. Arrrgggle!!
