I'm ready for summer!

This is a dress I found in a vintage shop for only 1. Can you imagine?!



I immediately loved the fabric, but I didn't like the length, the sleeves, ... I kinda felt like a strict school-teacher wearing it (hence the face)

So I decided to customize it a bit. I shortened it and cut the sleeves off.



How pretty is the front?



Let me know what you think and enjoy your Saturday evening :-) (or at least here in Belgium it is Saturday evening :p )
