So basically, here is the deal -
I have thyroid cancer that causes hypothyroidism. I gain and lose weight like a yoyo. My most recent fight sent me from 118lbs to 240lbs. Now that it's in check again, I am workign to lose it... So queue dress drama - My dream dress is discontinued so I had to buy it in my current size and alter it down next year once I have lost it all. I also had to order it a size small for right now as I am changing it to corset.
Anywho, its in, and I took pics in it (queue the "ugh I look horrendous" feeling) So yes, 39 lbs down, 80 to go.. but it will give an idea...
(the sash will be sewn into the corset, not tied.)
All of the left over lace from altering it down to the right size eventually will be used to trim the end of the veil and wrap around my bouquet.
