I've had this dress hanging in my closet for years and could count on one hand how many times I'd worn it.
I pulled it out of the closet for a complete overhaul, with the intent to completely replace the top portion. When I put it on for my mirror before picture, I kind of liked it again. But knew exactly what it needed...
The sleeves and awkward bottom trim had to go! And that was pretty much it.
