Though this may be against people's preconceptions i find that it's harder to bother to dress nicely when I'm thin. Because you know that you look cute (for a 50-year-old) in a jeans and a top too, so you don't have to make so much of an effort as when you're overweight.

It doesn't help that most of my nice skirts and tops are now way too big, so it is more complicated than before. But I'm working on it, and I will try and get some more nice knit v-neck tops when I get my next salary. I had five or six of them in different colours, that I had inherited from Anna, and they were a wardrobe staple - paired with a nice wool skirt I looked well dressed and professional.

A big problem is also that current fashions are for oversize and weird asymmetrical tops, not for classic fine knit cotton sweaters following the shape of the body.

Right now i have very few tops and no money, but I'm doing what I can with what I have and I'm re-sewing skirts as fast as I can/have the energy to.

And we're talking 25 centimetres (ten inches) here!

It looks very nice, though when I tried it on I noticed that the zipper buckles because the fabric has stretched on the bias where it's sewn in. So when I get home from the football (soccer) game I'm watching tonight I'm going to unpick the zipper. It's sewn in by hand so it will take a while, but I'm sure it's worth it.
