You see the problem: heinous bra-strappage, which is indicative of the larger problem, that this dress is just ready to slip right off the shoulder because the bodice is really, really loose. Short of re-cutting and sewing the whole damn bodice, which I don't want to do, there is nothing I can see to do about the fit. I am trying to decide if wearing a blouse under the dress would fix it. That would ruin the oh-so-light summer-y-ness, but it's a really cute dress and the ribbon always reminds me of those traditional German dress the waitresses (wenches?) at Octoberfest wear and so I always think of it as more autumnal anyway. I usually wear it with a cardigan, helping the bra strap but not the non-pictorially obvious cleavage preparing for world domination problem.
Dress: Handmade with wild and obviously flawed size extrapolation from one of the base patterns in Built by Wendy: Dresses
Bra (hey it's part of the outfit at this point): Cacique by Lane Bryant
Necklace: Gift shop from the Lucy exhibit at Houston Natural History Museum
Shoes: Crocs (I know, right).
