Lady in Red: Tie Back Dress #2

Hey All! Rather proud of this one...

Started with this...garment. Please don't judge.

Not much to say for my choice except: 1. it is silk (the rough kind - love it!) 2. it is red (hotness!) 3. it has side pockets (what! a dress with pockets? A rare and treasured oddity.)

After much hacking and hewing, it became this...

The cut out in front was actually my dad's idea. Almost like a mock crop top, no?
What do you guys think? 
More details on the process here at my blog post

Looks great and flattering. I think second hand / repurposed is a great way to get hold of soft fabrics eco-friendly. Lovely for the office too!
