Twisted front dress to boat neck dress

This dress didn't flatter me, and it resisted several attemps to refashion it. It had double layering in the front with the twisted part, and underneath it had a-top-with-straps-part. Everything I did, left the dress looking amputated.

Before refashion attemps 1, 2 and 3:

Eventually i decontructed the ****** thing completely. Now I could see its possibilities better. 
I turned it backwards, pinned and sewed the new neckline and sewed the sleeves back on, using the cut off straps as edge in the back.

I won! :-D
(oh, and need to wear a dark bra underneath this...)

Looks lovely on you! Not a fan of twists either a bit mid 2000s ! Work suitable clothing is always useful too

I love a boatneck and its such an improvement from the twist front! I totally understand the many versions of a refashion ;) and you DID win!
