my beautiful dress came in the mail today. i was sooo excited! it is gorgeous, and too big on me =(
i had wrongly assumed that a size medium in Japanese sizing would be like a Small or even an X-Small in american sizes. i had been worried that it would be too small since Asian women often tend to be on the tiny side. but no, this perfect dress, which i spent a ridiculous amount of money on, is too big. it's a sleeveless dress, like a cute little sundress, but the top is cut too full and i show waaaaay too much =(
i've looked it over, and i don't think i can alter it. it is so finely crafted and gorgeous i'd be afraid of ruining it. instead i'll try to re-sell it on eBay i suppose.
sigh. it's tough sometimes being a flat-chested fairy.
i'm just going to have to get all of my clothes custom made i guess =P
