well... kinda.
 
it started like this:

(ugly... yes?)

and after not too much work... i have this:

FRONT


CLOSE UP


BACK

Now time for me to ramble on about all its flaws....
well, for starters it's sooo... short... and low cut. (well for me..) I can't imagine ever wearing it out and public
then, one of the straps is slightly wider then the other
also, the weird non-fitting-ness of the back, it sags.
it's such strange fabric... like sweatshirt material..... as a dress.
but its super comfy, and looks cool as a skirt/top as well... so who knows, one day i might split it up... i'll prob get more use of it then....
I'm pretty proud of myself Grin
(to be quite honest, i think it looks better in real life)
what do ya think?

hay! good job! it looks hot! i love the front bunching thing (thats really in right now...i saw a top in glassons in that style hehe)
i recon it would look really cute with thinner straps made of ribbon (but thats just my personal likes)
all in all it looks really cool!

What a transformation!! Dowdy to hot!!  I think the neckline is flattering, and no one would notice the straps, really--I think the length is fine for a young woman with nice legs like yours--

to fix the back, you might want to put in some darts from under where your bra would go to the top of your butt cheek--I think it is bunching like that because girls are curvy!! You need something to take into account that you have a tiny waist!!

It might be more work, but did you take in the side seams at all? I think the original dress was made to be straight and your recon is much more form fitting...

heck, wear a cute wrap and sit down--no one will see the back, ha ha

Wonderful job!!

yes, i did take the side seams in... quite a lot. i'll try with some darts... it usually isn't too bad. of course the photo displays it at its worst. har har. Tongue

good lord that is lovely on you!
if you feel self conscious about how low cut at the bust it is, how about teaming it with a slash neck, 3/4 length sleeve red sweatshirty thing? im picturing it in my mind's eye and i reckon it would look hot but not OTT.
great job

wow! that is soooo hot!

yes, if you think it's too low cut, wear a tee under it. i think that could work too.
