Safari Animal Dress Makeover

This dress had me immediately. I just knew it had so much potential with that amazing fabric.


I cut off the purple sleeves, the pink trim on the bottom, and unstitched all of the trims around the edges (this part honestly took the longest). Then I hemmed up the bottom and the sleeves.

Ta da!
