I fell in love with it. The colors are MY colors.....my favorite color is turquoise. : )
The only problem with it? It was a few sizes too big and it just swam on me. The top of the dress was obscene, if you know what I mean. It would have required a camisole, no question.
So, I tried to alter it to the best of my ability. Which is not much. If you will recall, I am still new at sewing. I was unsuccessful at making it fit better. I tried giving it to my friend and it was not her style. And she returned it to me.
After the dress hung on my dress form for several months, I had a revelation.....make it into a skirt!
I pinned the sides and ran a seam to reduce the fullness of the skirt.
Here she be....
Not too shabby. Well, except for the waistband. : ) Since it was gathered with elastic in the back, I just cut off the bodice part and didn't do anything to it. I could add elastic at the top for a more finished look. Maybe I still will....but for now, since I rarely wear anything tucked in, this does the job just fine.
On me....I'll share a pic soon of what it looks like styled.
I just love those colors!!
