I found this dress in a box of some of my moms old clothes she was going to give away, I quickly snatched it up cuz I saw some potential in it. I took it in on teh sides and in the back, and I cut it shorter. I didn't think about not being able to wear it to school cuz it was so short until now..and I realy regret cutting it =(
Any suggestions on how to make it longer? Maybe adding some lace and the bottom and at the top neck part? I tried doing this french cuff thing at the bottom with the piece I had cut off but it looked too weird..

Do you have the fabric that you cut off?  Maybe you could make a ruffle, or, you could find a coordinating fabric and make a ruffle.

Well rescued! That looks great!
Im not sure if a ruffle would look right on this, cos its quite sleek. Maybe just a band of contrast fabric, like in pink or lilac? Or you could just leave it and wear it over trousers. I dont think it looks that indecent Smiley
