Dressing Mama P

December 29, 2009 at 5:02 pm Leave a comment

At the end of the summer, Macy’s put their summer dresses on sale.  I was thinking of Mama Pretzel when I spotted an aqua three piece silk suit.  I snatched it up thinking that it would make a great MOB dress, especially since it was a dressier version of a suits that Mama P likes to wear.  Our wedding isn’t going to be a dressy affair so finding a MOB dress that fits that vibe is challenging.

It needs a little altering but it’s definitely a contender.  Mama P thought the aqua shell that went under the jacket was a little bit “too much” so we replaced it with an off white shell.  She also has some reservations about the fabric weight being a touch heavy for a July wedding.  I will let the photos speak for themselves

We would shorten the skirt a little

The sleeves would also need to altered.

How darn cute is the ruffle?  *sigh*

But there is no alternations needed on the price tag!  What a steal!

I am not sure Mama P is sold on this dress- but we have it as an option.  How long did your Mom search for a MOB dress?  Did she go through more than one until she found “the one?”
