wow. fantastic recon!!  Shocked

at first i loathed that shirt but on the dress i think the fabric is really pretty. i guess prints like that should be taken in small doses :p 

seriously you did a fantastic job! that dress is really well constructed and you look very chic in it. Smiley

Oh, my! What an improvement! The fit and style make all the difference!

(But really  Roll Eyes, that's not the ugliest outfit in the world, by a loooong shot!)

Haha, maybe I was exaggerating a LITTLE saying it was the ugliest outfit in the world. Tongue But, you've got to admit, it is pretty bad. Haha.
Thanks everyonee!

to fluffysam: I agree totally. For some reason  making things with stuff from the fabric store just doesn't inspire as much.  I love ugly!
