My favorite, favorite skirt, that I haven't worn since I was 19. IT FITS ME!
When I got married, and when I was pregnant with my first DD, I was around 240 lbs. I still had some clothes - at least tops - from my late teens, early 20s. But after baby girl, none of that fit me, and I was too depressed to hang on to all these things I couldn't wear, so I threw them out. Except for the skirt (oh and my grad dress!); I couldn't bear it.
It used to be a pair of wiiiide leg jeans that I'd bought at a Skate Shop down on Granville Street, with a "K" (for my first name, Kristy) on the back pocket. The inseam split, and so with my mum's help, we turned it into a skirt with some denim that looked like corduroy (Sp?). The result? A lovely, long modern bohemian floor sweeping skirt. And it fits me. I am ecstatic! Which means, I am in and around the weight that I was 10 years ago!!!
