It sounds like she has been dreaming of this day a long time. This happens a lot if they had an overbearing MOB steal their day. Just laugh it off and don’t get involved in the shopping. Hopefully that is the only thing she will drive you cray cray about 🙂

Not to take anything away from your rant, we all know mother in laws can tend to get on our nerves and be annoying.  

However I buy dresses for a living and her criteria for a dress is not unrealistic, they’re valid call outs I hear daily.  Especially the sleeves, arms gets giggly when you get older and women get self-conscience about it.  They just want to feel comfortable, and to do that it means covering the legs (long dresses) and the arms (sleeves) most of the time.

Some people are just very particular about their clothes. I would not give her more suggestions as it will only be frustrating for you, as you can’t see the picture she has in her head. Luckily she has lots of time to go shopping.

She may be worried about how her legs look and wants a longer dress? Why not just let her approach this on her own?
