I once was a Housecoat


I once was a lonely Housecoat - unshapely and unloved.....but then I was rescued and given as a birthday gift.


Now I have a new lease on life.......with pockets (and after a few adjustments due to some undie flashing gaping moments)


I'm now perfectly suitable to be worn in public - phew!

That is so you that you should have a patent on it. Glad you fixed the undie flashing possibilities. Very embarasssing that. Cherrie

Were the undie-flashing gapey moments as timely as the gravity enhanced zipper moment I had? The skirt is gorgeous! Perfect for you.
