30 Days of Thanks: Day 13
13. I am thankful for my husband's tailor.
We were out of town again for most of the day as we had to go pick up DH's suit. It needed to be altered and the lady who does that (tailor, seamstress, not sure what the proper term is) lives about an hour and a half away. We are going to a formal murder mystery dinner on Friday so while in that area we decided to look for dresses. It's a school function and my mom also attends the school my DH goes to/works at so me, DH, my mom, and my little sister went. My mom and little sister were able to find dresses but I was not. I am never able to find a dress that fits. For those that don't know, I have a ridiculous cup size (F/G) which makes things difficult. Well apparently the tailor/seamstress lady also makes custom dresses! She said I can find a picture of a dress I like online, sketch something myself, or tell her what I want and she will sketch something, then she will make it to my measurements. We can go to the fabric store and pick out whatever fabric I want. Depending on how expensive the fabric is it probably won't cost me anymore than it would to buy a dress off the rack! I won't be able to do that by Friday obviously, but I also need a second formal dress for our cruise in January. So I am going to be thinking and looking around online over the next week and probably meet up with her the week after Thanksgiving to talk more about it. I haven't had a dress made for *me* since I was like a toddler or something so I am really looking forward to it. I am not however looking forward to searching for more dresses tomorrow... Wish me luck!
I did think it was funny that at one of the stores the lingerie section was right next to the maternity section. Kind of like a warning, "CAUTION: If you buy some of these, you may need some of those." =D
