I did it I finally did! As I said before I'm and avid vintage shopper, I am also in the habit of giving my dresses a little nip here and a tuck there. This time I went a little to far and butchered this particular dress, if you notice in the before picture of the dress I am not wearing it because it was absolutely scandalous! Then I had a light bulb moment ( thank goodness cause I really liked this dress) I would use the excess fabric to make a ruffle which would make the dress long enough to go out in public. Phew!
The moral of the story is when you buy vintage, your outfit is original and it's great for the environment!
