Gifts from above

We were in the office as one was going through the winter skirts to see what is worth taking in and what will never be in the wardrobe again. Sometimes a skirt just isn't worth the hassle or time and sometimes altering them will change their overall shape too much. Sighing with resignation one commented that with an hour glass figure finding well fitting skirts was always something of a challenge. This was always the problem when one was younger... by the time they are a good fit everywhere else they are huge around the waist. Jeans were even worse with their gaping backs... at least they make a demi-curve jean now so it isn't so bad.

He looked up from the computer with that calculating look in his eye. So what size are you now He enquired
That focused look should have been a warning but...
Like a lamb to the slaughter...
Umm... probably between a 10 and a 12 depending on the manufacturer one answered absently, still thinking about skirts and how one was going to alter two fabulous purple skirts.

He perked with a sudden keen interest. As soon as I have some spare money I'll start looking for that Wonder Woman outfit He said, looking way too happy

Mutters why doesn't one feel the least bit rewarded?

Ive always had a problem with finding a skirt or dress to fit right especially since I'm so short and a bit round LOL

I frequently have to alter clothes. What a pain. But the Wonder Woman outfit should work out just fine for you, lol.

Clothing alteration is a pain... and as someone who can sew, it is still a pain :(
