Take this 80s dress I found at the thrift store (at least I think it's from the 80s, maybe it's older!)
I wore it just like that (with a skinny or broad belt) for awhile, but I knew that I wanted to do something to make it feel more modern...knowing I'd wear it more if it felt less 80s.
So after frantic brainstorming emails with sister #3 I had a game plan. But it was still hard to make that first cut!!
I cut off the sleeves and made them more of a cap sleeve and shortened the skirt by 4". I'm trying to decide if I want to go another 1.5-2" shorter....
And here it is!
