I met Amanda Elliott of Windy City Cosmo only recently, when I reached out to her about getting a dress made – she agreed, and things progressed to dinner and drinks 🙂
She was awesome to do this great write-up of Measuremake’s made-to-measure experience:
I swear I don’t intend to wear dresses that are short.
I have grouped them in my closet as NSFW.
In fact, my favorite dress is this blue Banana Republic dress. The Banana Republic tends to have more conservative dresses, but I still have the same problem. If my legs aren’t overexposed, I feel that my chest is.
It’s not that I want to cover every inch of my body – I would just like to not flash the world every time I sit down on the CTA.
Dresses tend to be too short to function in.
It’s a tall girl problem and it’s a short girl problem. It’s a curvy girl’s moment and a skinny girl’s issue as well.
Dresses aren’t made to fit you off the rack. They’re meant to fit you well enough.
