I got this Vera Wang dress on sale at Kohl's ($15!) and couldn't pass up its beautiful fabric and details. However, it's a little long on me, and I'm not sure if the tent-dress style (especially combined with the extra length) is very flattering on my petite frame. I'd like to hem it to make it into a (modest ) mini-dress, but I've never tried to hem something like this before. Also, there are some nice pleats at the bottom of the dress (some in the back that you can't see in the picture also) that I'd like to salvage if at all possible. I don't feel too bad chopping it up since I got it cheap, but I'd like to do it justice - after all, I'm hoping to wear it to a few weddings this summer!
(Please ignore the hokey picture - it's the only one I could find online of the dress .)
