Long day…totally pooped out…sorry for the lack of energy in the pics.
Anyway, the Eileen Fisher red Dark Tulip dress I ordered from eBay arrived today. The fabric is the same as that in my EF drape front dresses, although a wee bit more substantial - like a winter weight version. And although my wall colour skews the red a bit, the colour is absolutely DIVINE. This is exactly the dark rich red I love and want for my fall/winter wardrobe.
However - it's too big :( This is a Petite Large and clearly I need a Petite medium - the same size as my drape front dresses.
I have been able to find the EF Dark Tulip items in Petite Medium in the skirts, blouses, cardigans, tanks etc but still have not seen one on eBay in the PM. Will keep looking though.
I don't suppose Wonder Woman could make this fit, could she? It is simple in that there are two side seams and no lining. But they are dolman sleeves with dropped shoulders - don't know how complicated that would be.
YLF seamstresses - do you think this dress could be made smaller?
Or do I just return to my fab seller for my refund and keep hoping for a Medium to show up?
The other option is my seller has a regular Medium available - but that may be too long on me.
