Here's a refashion I did yesterday of an 80s shoulder padded dress. I bought it at an op shop months ago because I liked the fabric, but it was completely shapeless and outdated.
I removed the sleeves, took off the pockets, chopped some length, took in the sides and back, and removed the shoulder pads. I ended up making it a bit too short, and the armholes are a little large, so it's still a work in progress I think. I'm still deciding if I should add a band or frill to the bottom? Maybe I could just wear it over pants.
You can see more of my adventure over on my blog if you like.
