Agreed.  I am older than you and the core subjects were: English, maths, history, geography, art and stuff you did in the science block. 0_0

Education is being dumbed down with school qualifications being less than useless with too many students going to university to study non-vocational subjects.  A high proportion of university graduates have non-graduate jobs and still have to pay off that massive loan.
What goes around comes around.

I always wished we were taught cooking at school. I do remember we had 'life skills' sessions in sixth form, but I think you only two... I think I did cooking and something which included ironing, sewing on a button and changing a plug because I was late signing up. I missed out on basic car maintainance and budgeting...

Back to the dresses - BM1's fits like a dream and looks gorgeous. False measurements girl's was not as bad as it could have been. I need to move the bust darts, raise the waistband, and she's decided she wants it a bit shorter. All fine.

Then she said as I was leaving, 'of course, I'll probably have lost most of the weight off my chest by the wedding'. :angry:

I see myself sat in the hairdresser's chair the morning of the wedding hand stitching her dress...

Padding.  Take padding.   ;)
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

I think I would have told her that the dress would no longer fit if she lost too much weight and would look awful on her.
Life's too short for ironing.

Absolutely.  And then LET it look awful on her.  Some people refuse to get the drift- won't you have better things to do on the day?  MAke that plain NOW
C'est moi!

At which point I hope you said 'in that case I will need to see you 1-2 weeks before the wedding so I can check the fit again?'

Or do as DF suggested  :devil:
