I have a dress. It's pink with flowers on it, I have it from 4 years ago. It goes just above my knee { now } Hahah & I want to make it funky, maybe make it shorter & tighter, add some different material. Or something.
I was wondering if anyone had any ideas with tutorials. Help pleease !!

Eek, very bad picture, but my camera sucks. So here it is.

They didn't agree on much. In fact they rarely agreed on anything. They fought all the time and they challenged each other everyday. But in spite of their differences they had one important thing in common. They were crazy about each other.

I have an idea, you can turn it into a navel-bearing camisole.  First, cut off the bottom so that is reaches to the hips, then slice a verticle slit from the bottom center of the bust all the way down, then serge the slit and all around the hem to form a lettuce edge.

try typing in tulle or ballerina into the search, u mite end up with a lot of results but u'll find something i'm sure.... Also, u could try making the top part into a v neck, and then put silky ribbon along the top edge, so along the v neck and replace the straps with ribbon and if u want, braid the straps,  and make it into a halter... If ur doing the tulle, I saw this really cool dress at fairweather that had really different lengths at the bottom and was sort of pleated but more of a loose ruffle, I dunnno how to describe it (I'm new at this recon language stuff...) if I find a similar pic. i'll post it...
