I was thrilled to find an Anthropologie Dakota Dress on sale recently because it truly is “downright femme,” just as Anthro described it. The Dakota dress has a striking texture, a hip high-low hemline, and a nicely draped full skirt. So, what’s the problem? The fit is not quite right.
You see, even after sizing up one size, the middle of the dress remained a tad tight, while other areas became too large. Darn it! This one’s going back!
|You can see a little pulling across the chest when my hands are at my sides.
I can’t raise my hands in the dress without popping a few buttons,
and I don’t like feeling restrained in my clothing.
Have you come across any great shirtdresses lately? I’m still looking.
