Here she is in all her cheap cotton glory . . .
Right away, I notice issues that need correction.*

Second, my regular strapless bra is just not going to cut it in a top this close fitting. I need a bustier. Dammit.
Third, I have way too much room in the top which equals gaping.
Fourth, which you can really see in this side shot (where I apparently was trying to imitate Kate Winslet in Titanic), The bodice is just a little too big which caused a little pleating and blousing at the waist.
Fifth, linebacker shoulders are in full effect. This shot right here has me considering sleeves.
Sixth, I am either short or the garment industry in general thinks everyone is six feet tall. This skirt is supposed to be tea length. On me it's dragging three inches on the floor.
What do you think? Remember-it's supposed to look like this little number here . . .
With a less full skirt and a flower detail, it could be a Mimi.
*Now I will only subject you all to my personal lumpiness in the interest of a loftier goal.
