Blue Havana Dress

I picked up this pretty blue rayon dress for $3. I love this border print but I'm a short and sweet kinda girl. So on to the first chop!

Getting the top to the right height.

Removing length from the skirt. Chopping off a good foot and a half or so.

My pup Alfie wanted to help with the picture taking

And my other pup Kiki wanted to help with the measuring.

Back to the dress! bringing up the bottom of the skirt to waist level brought the side slits up really high. Like Mid bum level... So had to unpick the slits and sew up the sides of the skirt. 

And Voila!

Thanks for looking! And happy refashioning!

The shorter length shows off that fun print so much better. Very nice! And that blue is a great color on you.
