Story Follow-up

A few months ago, Francesca tried her best to help our reader Jen, who needed an olive-green bridesmaid dress for her brother’s wedding.

Francesca has received this update from the Jen!

Several months ago you responded to my request for help finding an olive green bridesmaid’s dress. You shared my pain in discovering there weren’t many choices out there in the right color. I wanted to send you a picture of what I ended up picking.


You’ll see that the color is not quite olive, but it’s close enough (I got prior approval from my sister-in-law, of course).  I ended up finding it at Evans online – I lived in London for a semester a few years ago, so was familiar with the UK plus-sized shopping scene.  It was labeled a prom dress.  I had it shortened and otherwise tailored and I was quite happy with the result!

Francesca says:  The Jen indeed looks lovely, and wishes the hearty congratulations on Jen’s brother’s marriage.

    Francesca is indeed correct, Jen. You look lovely.

    I wish your brother and his bride every possible joy.

    Cute! Cute! Cute! And I had bridemaid’s dresses. It’s a lovely color on Jen.

    Thank you, thank you. The olive green choice ended up being quite lovely – maybe when I get married, I’ll make all my bridesmaids wear it.

    Thanks so much for telling us how it all turned out! I always wonder. And Jen, this particular shade of green looks great with your hair!

    Yay, Jen! And you do indeed look absolutely lovely in that dress.
