So I have this AWESOME shirt dress that I bought at forever 21 for $2.
As soon as I brought it home, I realized it was wayyy to big for a medium.  there's about 1 inch of extra room across the shoulders and 3 extra inches from the ribs and 2 inches extra around the under arms.

There's pockets on the front, which I kind of like, but I'm thinking of moving them else where.
It's almost a military style shirt dress.
What drives me crazy is the box pleat on the back.
AND there's too many buttons...15 to be exact.

I like to wear things with belts but if I wear this with any sort of belt at all, it poofs out and I look like a hunch back and there's too much fabric that gathers up and poofs up  quite a bit...

Would the best thing be to deconstruct the whole thing??
If there wasn't a box pleat, it wouldn't be such an issue ;\
