I had this twee rose print dress from when I was twelve years old. Amazingly, I can still fit into it.

I saw that it had a lot of potential, so I decided to do get cracking on how to jazz it up.

The armholes and chest area were straining. Ah, it feels good to be more of a woman!

So this is the end result!

A halter neckline...


A racerback...

And I can wear it now! Cheesy

Very cute.  That's one heck of a side slit in the first pic!  Did you keep it?

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.

What an amazing transformation! It's all growed up now! Seriously, though I love what you did with the neckline. I've never attempted a collar. Great JOB!!!

Great idea.  I can't believe it still fits you--please tell me you're only 13!

And looking at it again, I realized that it already HAD a collar. UG! That's the second post I've done that to today! Well, the racerback really brings out the collar and really makes the entire thing look fantastic! Regardless of what mess I'm seeing!
