Baton Rouge, Lou...
This dress was originally a size 8 in petites. It also had sleeves, a huge collar, an elastic waist, was 3" longer, and had hidden pockets. I ripped the sleeves & collar off. I also took it in A LOT at the sides & in the back, between the shoulders. I couldn’t leave the pockets as they were, but I’m planning on adding them to the front of the dress later. I also raised the lower hem at least 3". I get compliments on it all the time.
