Below the Belt

Friday, February 22, 2013 10:39 PM

The other day I saw a forum link to this post at Extra Petite about using a belt to secure a shirt over a dress. I figured I should try it with this new/thrifted dress because its low neckline and shiny silver fabric make it inappropriate for work unless the top is covered. I found that knotting the shirt made it too bulky in the back — it appears that Jean and the blogger who inspired her both used shirts with very lightweight fabric. So I untied the shirttails, rolled them up and used safety pins to fasten them in front and back. A stretchy belt was perfect for holding it all in place.
