2 Simple Dress Re-fashions:

I'll be honest. I wasn't positive that I could rescue this one.  It was loose, the elastic at the waist was shot, and it had intimidating fan pleats.  I started at the bottom hem, gave it a trim and ironed the pleats back into place.  Then I slimmed the whole bodice and took the sleeves off. I threw on a belt above the drop waist and I really love how it turned out.

 Anything with a lace collar has my attention.  I simply took out the shoulder pads, took off the sleeves, and shortened the length. Dreamy.
