Those are some craaaazy shoulderpads, lemme tell ya!

Note those massive shoulder pads (the higher the shoulders, the closer to God?), that unraveling doily of a collar, and that uber-unflattering dropped angular waist!

I really have my work cut out for me with this one, folks!

Speaking of cutting…

Time for those stifling sleeves to go buh-bye as well!

Same for that length!

Goodbye Doily!

I used the bottom scrap as a sort of obi belt, and put the dress on backwards (to give me a less stifling neckline).

Now I have a cute work-worthy dress in a lovely hue!  🙂

Ah! Much improved! 🙂

It’s very simple-looking, but I think that’s just fine, considering how this dress began its life!

Cheers!
