REFASHION: stripes and ruffly dress

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?

The ruffle looks great. I know what you mean about wondering if you could have done differently. I always feel that way about my projects too.
