  2. The dress - for what this must have cost it's inexcusable that the coloured lines don't match up, either at the waist or at the side. That's an elementary sewing rule.
    It all looks a bit girlish, with the cards and the loose hair.

    1. I´m also very irritated by those lines not matching up. It´s a real failure in design. I think it is impossible to make all lines meet at the waist, let alone at both waist and sides, given the fact that the lines have a different angle in the skirt. And because of that, I think the dress really needs a belt or a different colour panel at the waist. As is, I find the line situation at the waist highly distracting in an otherwise flattering and fun dress. Could be a tad shorter though. And it´s out of season - save it for summer, and then wear it without the cardi.

    2. Out of season? She is in Malawi, where it is WARM.

    3. I think that is the idea of couture, that it is different from what all others look like, or that some rules are broken.....it would be boring otherwise

  4. La parte de abajo del vestido le sienta bien a Sophie, pero la de arriba le aplasta el pecho. La rebequita de punto es ridícula.

  5. Okay, I understand, that this journey is not about fashion, but it also not necessary to show up like an old damsel dressed up for the church bazar.

    The lady in the orange fitted dress looks great and vibrant. This pattern, orange with red stars all over, is a classic design of African Wax Prints by the way and is reprinted since twenty years or more.

  6. And again she wears clothes that doesn't look good on her. On model this dress isn't something special but at least follows her body shape. Sophie (sorry, dear Sophie, that doesn't mean I don't like you) however doesn't poses the shape of the body model has, so this dress looks very akward and unattractive on her. This hairdo is to forget also.

  7. Ok I will be the one to say it ~ the dress is too tight over her chest. She looks like she has been wrapped up. As in breast binding they used to do post delivery to help with stopping lactation (yep they did that 40 yrs ago).

    Not keen on the pattern.

    The orange dress is fantastic! Just the sort of color you would see in a place like Malawi :)

    1. Diane, you are so right and you had the courage to speak the truth 👍 This dress is absolutely nothing for Sophie, I mean the lines of the pattern are even drawn apart over the chest.

      Where do these royal ladies buy their clothes? Online? and anonymous? Did she not try this dress on before bying? Any good shop assistant who knows her job would have advised her against this dress.
      And these old fashioned uninspired accessoires, cardigan, clutch , nude pumps make it even worse. A good shop owner also provides their clients with matching accessiores.
