I always think these little strapless, shirred dresses are so cute, but I never wear them since it means wearing a strapless bra too. So this one is getting flipped upside down and turned into a batwing-esque blouse with the shirred part as the waistband.
I cut off the top half of the shirred portion since it was all stretched out. Then I cut slits at the bottom of the skirt that will become my new arm holes. Finally, I sewed the front and back bottom hems of the dress together to form the shoulder seams, leaving a hole for my head, obviously.
