Floral and Paisley Long Sleeve Dress Remake

When I first saw this dress, I really wasn't pay attention to much else beside the amazing fabric. I loved the patterns and knew I could make something beautiful out of this.

Dress before 

What I did:  
1. Trimmed the sleeves and did a rolled hem (tutorial to come!) on the edges to give the 
sleeves an organic flowy look rather than a solid flat hem.
2. Brought up the length and hemmed it.
3. Added a belt!

Here's the after
