I bought my Maggie Sottero Geneva under trying circumstances (hurried, and within days of a friend’s death) so I struggled with whether I’d made a good decision. I convinced myself it was the right one, but the longer I get away from seeing it the more I doubt it. I was too rushed to take a picture when I chose it, so I finally got back to the shop today and took a pic of me in the sample. It looks so much better than I remember… I just had to share!
(The fold across the abdomen is because there’s about 3-4 inches of the seam below the corset in the back that’s ripped out, so it bulges/gapes out around the lower butt/hips. It’s also rather dirty. I’ll be adding point d’spree sleeves that start right on the “corner” of the shoulder and go down most of the upper arms–hopefully that will help with the bulging arpit and flappy arms problems).
Questions/help: What do you think of the veil? Being so short (5’3.5″), I was concerned that a short veil would cut me off in the middle, but I kinda like this one. Still worried that it cuts me off, though. But from the side, it nicely hides and balances the big butt, haha! Also, does it look like the dress is sitting too low on me? Thanks for your opinions!
I’m so glad I finally have some pics to look at everytime I start to worry!
