How am I not myself?

I always forget to take a before picture. This dress was long, elastic-waisted, and all pale yellow. Now it's this:







Basically, I shortened it and added all the black . . . a ruffle at the bottom, sash over the elastic waist, and fabric-covered buttons at the collar.

What gorgeous details. I love the way you made the best of the cute bits of the 'before' dress in adding your own accents.  Well done!

oooh, that's so cute! It really did the contrast of the black against the pale yellow.

Great work. I am always finding gorgeous silk dresses at the thrift store with horrendous elastic waitlines. Your solution is quite elegant.

You really gave that dress a new life.  It has a very sophisticated look to it.  I can imagine the original version, and I bet the frumpiness would have been hard to see past.  One can really appreciate that unique collar now.
