So I had this dress laying around and I never wore it because of the design of it.  Love retro shirt dresses, love pin-stripes but with a fluffy little girl skirt + princess sleeves... not so much.  Also because I have average sized breasts (this dress was obviously purchased at a store that uses skinny adolescent boys as their models) every time I would move practically, the fabric would stretch at the buttons.  Boo.  

Here's what it looked like before.

See what I mean?!  So I decided to take out the back and the sleeves for a sexier look, which is what pin-stripes say to me!  Also no fabric in the back to pull on the front causing indecent exposure.  I accidentally took out a bit too much in the front and had a horrible side boob issue which was, thankfully, fixed with some of the extra fabric from the piece I cut out.  

After trying it on with the top part finished the skirt (which I was okay with at first) looked all the more fluffy, little girl.  So I decided to slim it up along the sides.  This is how it turned out!

Much better, wouldn't you say?!  Thanks for looking~

What a great transformation, I love it! It's so very interesting to look at now, and has such personality.

I just joined Ravelry, let's be friends?
