I bought this dress last week for $1.25 at my local thrift store.
I liked the color and the shape. It definitely had potential. I didn't like the giant shoulder pads and the awkward length. I find that most dresses are made for taller women. I am not one of those women.
I removed the shoulder pads and took in the bodice and skirt about 3 inches. I knew it would be a hot day so the 3/4 sleeves just would not do.
I went back and forth on the neckline and finally decided to create a v-neck. I took 5 inches off the bottom as well!
The final product:
|Obviously, I was my own photographer.|
It turned out to be a great dress. It feels a little more grown up than I'm used to, but I guess that's alright since I'll be 28 this week.
Oh, I almost forgot...I think the dress goes well with my new hair, don't you? :)
