Too big

Printed rose embroidered collar top Sister Jane 
Black satin pleated skirt Burberry, similar by Armani under 35.00 USD
Black velvet block heel Juicy Couture, similar - Metallic satchel Stella Rittwagen
Vintage brown satin belt with gold buckle Escada
When I bought this skirt it was too big and I didn't care. But now I do, because the fact that its two sizes bigger than I normally use has not allowed me to wear it. Yes, I know I should have it altered. 
Currently, I am in the hunt for a new seamstress as Maria, my current one, is not answering my calls or text messages and it's been a week now. She has a vintage dress that needed altering and have wanted to pick up for two weeks now. Maybe she went dancing in it ?
So I added a belt in the hopes I could get by and make it look like a paper bag waist skirt. I don't know if I fooled you, but I certainly did not fool me. 
I need to find a new seamstress. Oh and do you ever wonder if your seamstress wears your clothes or am I totally deranged?

Good luck finding a new seamstress and getting your vintage dress back. I am sure she must be busy or unwell. Hope she gets in touch soon. I love the whole outfit and the belt did the trick very well. Happy weekend xoxo Cris

It's a shame the belt trick didn't work with your skirt! I hope you can track down your seamstress. I went to mine every few months, went to her shop once and it was closed! Found her again via facebook and she was working from home for a bit, but now she is retired so I also need to find a new one! There's a lady that does it that I want to try, I need to message her as I have a few things I want altered at the moment!

Maybe she's just been sick? I would think that would be an unwritten rule: not to wear your clients things!

I like this outfit - the shape is great on you! But yes, the skirt looks a bit big. Great piece, though - sell it and let it go to a good home!

Yo siempre he pensado eso con la gente de la lavandería. Btw Lorena, el look fabuloso, pero me mataste con la correa. Esta espectacular!

La verdad es que no parece que te quede grande. En cualquier caso es muy mona y si la quieres llevar más a menudo pues si... ¡deberías llevarla a una modista!
Siento no poder ayudarte con ese tema... ¡espero que pronto puedas contactar con la tuya!
