Dress No. 2 being way too long for my short frame, I found no other issues with the dress. It didn't make me look pregnant, and the angled stripes were bold but kind of flattering. The easiest fix would be to create a new hemline, but then a fabulous idea hit me! Add a ruffle hem! I definitely needed to shorten the hem anyway -- so why not use the extra fabric to create a ruffle hem?
