We attended the Christmas Ball for the 65th Medical Brigade, which encompasses Dean's unit. As I was gravid (preggers), I had loads of trouble finding something to wear, and forget about finding a modest maternity formal. Most ladies were in real ball gowns, but alas the one I bought mail order, hoping it would fit, didn't at all. Nor did the dress I ordered from Motherhood Maternity (way too big). So I was left with this dress that I got on ebay for cheap. I hemmed the long sleeves and the skirt, which was a few inches longer than this. Now I'm wondering what to do with the dresses that are still new with tags - maybe try to sell them on ebay? It's too late to return them.
