Does this dress make you wanna throw on some hot pink leg warmers and belt Girls Just Wanna Have Fun at the top of your lungs or what? I kinda regret not wearing a studded belt and curling my bangs for these pictures.
Here's what I did:
I chopped off the top then I took in the sleeves (a lot!) and the sides (a little). Then I sewed the top back on to the skirt, taking the waist seam up quite a bit. Lastly, I hand sewed the odd side slit on the skirt (see before pic; it's on my left side). I had originally planned on taking the hem up a little, but when I put it on to mark where I wanted to take it to, I was happy with the midi-ish length. Saved me 10 minutes.... okay, more like 30 because I couldn't stop singing Cindy Lauper to the mirror long enough to focus on my dress.
P.S. I went to the dentist today. My dentist also couldn't stop singing while he was checking out my chompers. It was a good sign. Zero cavities.
