Wow!  You are totally working those ruffles, girl!  Smiley
From Pinstriped Frumpgirl to Office Lolita.  Grin
In the Before pics, you are camera-shy then AFTER you are striking America's Next Top Model poses wearing your hot new outfit.  Smiley
I love it.  Classic example of fun and sexy clothes giving a girl confidence.

I adore your fun sense of style. And the end results shows A LOT of work that an amateur wouldn't be able to pull off.  The cut and fit are very flattering, especially the waist gathers right at the bottom row of buttons. 

I would make one teeny tiny change.  In the first pic, the armholes from the front appear maybe an inch to an inch and a half too broad. It isn't that obvious, since your hands are on your hips, I just mean that they could be cut a little bit narrower behind the lapel and you would get a smoother fit when you drop your arms.  I have modified a few things from the potato-sack look you started with to more fitted, and the cut of the armhole has a big impact on how your girls up front look.  I only mention this, because you obviously 1)have superior sewing skills, 2) know what looks good on you, and 3) attention to detail.  You have a curvy but petite frame that most women would kill for.  Make the most of it!  and Good luck in the challenge!

p.s. This Rocks, and Wisted Wisted Wisted
