I started packing away my summer threads and hauling out my (very tiny) winter wardrobe. I found some dresses I last wore before pregnancy and had a look to see if they still fitted. I have a few velvet sleeveless dresses that has buttons right down the front and none of them would button up past my tummy! I tried starting from the bottom and also tried from the top it just wouldn’t close over the gut and the boozums.:-) I was totally frustrated as they’re still in good nick and in an inspired moment, I decided to wear them as ‘coats’. So now I have a few more outfits to add to my little wardrobe. I wear them over trousers and polonecks or long-sleeved t-shirts. Problem solved! Necessity truly is the mother of all invention.
