Slightly Altered

11.10.11


Is it a top, or a dress? It's a mystery!  No, really it's not.  Read on.


I really like this dress, but it's actually really short on me.  Doesn't look it in the picture because I'm not moving at all. But it's so short, that now that I'm a little older I shouldn't be wearing it.  But I really do love the pattern and cut.  So rather than give it away or stash it, I decided to alter it.

*side note: best outfit shots ever!  check out Baby!*



Top - F21 *altered*; Blazer - Esprit; Belt - AE; Jeans - Guess; Shoes - Payless.

Made it into a shirt!  I'm not a very handy woman.  But I do have some minor sewing skills.  I don't however, own a sewing machine.  So I asked my lovely Mama and she was more than willing to hem this little number for me.

Now it's a really cute top!

P.S.  Sorry no Tuesday In Review today.  I promise I'll get back on track next week!

  2. Pishposh about being a little older and thus it getting too short! I do, however, love it as a shirt!! So many people would just turn it into skirt!

  8. Nice and simple--just the way I like it. I don't have much sewing skills either, but I can definitely take your cue and do something to my dresses that are too short. Thanks for the inspiration!
