Kristine Jorskogen asks:
I found this vintage dress among my too small clothing that now fits again! I used it a lot when I was younger. The belt is also vintage. What do you think of this on my cello figure?
This is a brilliant dress for a cello body shape. The skirt falls gently over the thighs whilst the lace sleeves veil the upper arms. A broad, square neckline helps to reduce your chest area.
We only have two suggestions:
1. For a cello it is important to elongate the waist. To that end we would suggest a wider belt, perhaps with a suggestion of corsetry.
2. The neckline is a little high. If you really love this dress and want it to flatter you absolutely, it might be worth taking it to a good dressmaker and getting the neckline lowered so that it shapes your bust more. We would suggest just taking it down a bit further in the centre so that it creates a kind of ‘chevron’ shape and flatters your cleavage.
