This is my Halloween costume, even though I don't quite look that like that haha. Well they were out of my size, so I had to go a size up...needless to say it does look a little big. I pinned up the skirt, so it's a little shorter (I'm on the short side to begin with, so if I shorten it I still wont look like I'm playing peekaboo), and it looks a little better this way. See that yellow strip near the bottom of the skirt? That's a type of shiny/plastic/reflective material. So I was wondering if I could just pull that strip up a tad so some fabric is kinda folded under it, and the hot glue the top of the strip back to the dress? Or I could even use some super glue or E6000.

I figure that would be easiest since I'm only going to wear it 3 times max this year (different parties) so I don't care if it doesn't look to professional. I would just hem it a bit shorter, but I am planning on taking off a couple of inches, so it would greatly cut the bottom of the dress out of the picture.

Any suggestions/tips would be greatly appreciated  Grin
