Polka Dot Dress Makeover

I saw this dress and knew it had potential from it's cute button details and polka dots. First, I removed the shoulder pads and shortened the sleeves and bottom hemline.  Then I tightened the bust and waist a little bit to give a more flattering fit.  Then I styled it with a belt to add some interest. I love how it turned out with just these simple changes! More before and after pics on my blog here.

The buttons, the polka dots, the collar, the pleats - this dress had so many things going for it. And you really did them justice!
