I love this dress so much, and I wish I could wear it more often, but I haven’t gotten it hemmed yet. Actually, when I bought it, I intended to wear it belted and bunched up a bit so it wouldn’t be so long. And that seemed to work better on my figure anyway, because I have such a short waist, dresses (especially column-style dresses) tend to fit me a little weird. I’d like to be able to cut about a 1/2 yard of material from the middle of the dress and sew it back in without creating a seam. Not going to happen. I did try and wear it belted, but it didn’t stay up and ended up being more annoying than it was worth.
Anyway, this dress is on sale at Barney’s right now for $59, so I wanted to share it with you again, in case you’ve been wondering about it. The fit on me is a bit snug because of my hips and short waist, and I’m wearing a size large. I’ve washed/dried it successfully several times and it’s holding up well – I’ve always found that my Splendid pieces last a long time – no problems at all so far.
