This Rachel Pally dress FINALLY arrived yesterday from Hautelook (their long shipping times really make me appreciate Gilt!) and I really like it, although it was WAY too long on me. And since Rachel Pally doesn’t “finish” her hems, I cut it. I made a real mess. Hopefully you can’t tell from the picture, but I’m pretty sure the dress is shorter in the back (I should have left it a bit longer in the back to allow for that) and my scissors were not sharp enough, so the line is not “straight.” And, of course, I think the dress is now TOO short, but I know you guys won’t think so 🙂
I’m going to wear it, and I do love the dress, but I wish I’d taken it to be professionally cut instead of doing it myself. In case you hadn’t noticed, I’m really not a DIY’er!! But I didn’t sleep well last night and am taking more Vicodin to try and combat the pain from my root canal yesterday before going out tonight to a few of my friends’ Austin Fashion week parties, so I didn’t want to go out this morning. Ah. Live and learn!
