Catching up with my triangle dress

It's been ages since I posted here last. I've been neglecting my own blog, too. I've had a busy month with my my Etsy shop, but other than that, I can't figure out where my time is going.
When it comes to my refashions, it's like, "if it's not a dress, what do I want with it?" Going along on that theme; my triangle dress:
There's not much to like here, with the extra room, length, and too long sleeves.
That print tho
I adore fun prints, and there was something I loved about those little triangles. I just wanted to make this smaller, and with elbow length, cuffed sleeves. Of course, after all the necessary alterations, something was still not right. If I didn't want it to balloon out like that, I would have to make the bodice shorter and that sounded way hard. Unless...
I put the "shirt" into the "skirt" so the right sides were together before making any cuts! It worked pretty well, but either way; I've got belts.
Not sure why you'd need more info, but if you do, here's the full post! Craft, Thrift, or Die 
Also, I just started my long vacation, so you bet I'll do some sewing. Maybe you'll hear from me soon!

Thank you everyone! So many of my refashions involve black or navy. Those shoes really help make them more interesting. Problem is, they're really not comfortable enough for a whole work day, so they don't get worn as often as I'd like. You've convinced me that I need more red shoes.
