Hot Pink 80's with Shoulder Pads to Flattering Cocktail Dress

Hello friends!

I found this amazing dress at a local consignment store a few weeks ago and decided to have some fun with it today!


I removed the sleeves and shoulder pads (which immediately brought it out of the 80's).  Next, I used one of my favorite tricks: I took a dress that already fits me and used it as a pattern to alter the shape of this boxy dress.  It turned out fabulous!


If you want more details (and a few pictures) showing how I used an old dress to fix the fit of this pink number check out my original post!  Happy Monday!
