Ok, those aren't really troubles but my life lack a bit of spices at the moment, so anything seems epic to me.. Wink

TROUBLE n1 :
i'm really lazy now, but desperatly in need of new clothes
so I bought a dress at a well-known swedish clothes shop (not to name h&m oops !)
(no patience to make one, though i've at least 10 projects in my head)

TROUBLE n2 :

My legs are definitely too big, and the dress too short for me.
So i decided to add a piece of black at the bottom...

TROUBLE n3 :
the piece of fabric is hemed, but as i was too lazy (again) to measure it, it appears there's a big gap on the side,

Solution :
i added a colour-matching piece of fabric and a vintage button...



it seems ok to me now !
and i'm happy to have this not so home-made dress now !

But do you think i should add something to it?
a simple stuff, ok, as i told you i'm laaaazyyy today .. Grin

Great fix.  I love the purple and the button.  It gave the dress some really good character.

at least its customised so its not just another manufactured multi made piece of clothing, I love what you have done, maybe a black belt and then that would be a great finish Smiley

That's a really great idea for all those dresses I see and love but that look much too short!

It's really cute Smiley
