Burda 7442

Made this dress back in the Winter. It turned out to be an ill-fitting mess.
I held onto it though because I loved the colors.


THEN...


NOW...


Lopped off the sleeves, re-hemmed them and added a band to cinch the shoulders.

Much better, right?

That is an awesome fix, girl. It's like the print fits the style of the dress now...like it was meant to be a summery dress.
