So, I bought this beautiful pink dress off ebay:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v171/opals/650.jpg

It looked so lovely on the girl in the picture, despite the interesting sleeves.
Then it arrived and I tried it on. Due to lack of boobage, and just generally not being the girl in the picture, it looked terrible on me. As you can see below.

Before:


So I made it a bit smaller, took off those sleeves and added some banding around the neckline, and now it is wearable! Hurrah!

After

Whole thing:

How weird, the ebay picture does look perfect. Oh well, I think you really spruced it up, it looks very pretty now. Way better than picture one. Your shoes are also unbelievably cute!

I once read about a guy who thought he was buying a plasma TV for $2,000, but it turned out it was a lifesize picture of a plasma TV for $2,000.

Anyways, nice recon!

Nice recon.

actually it looks like you're built very similarly as the model and I don't think it looked bad on you before. but I LOVE the changes you made. they're fantastic! and the new dress looks great. Smiley
