Last year I restyled Plain-Jane navy knit dress from Target to evening BBQ maxi. Simple add-on not only covered a less than stellar bust, but gave a beautiful décolleté and balanced my pear-shaped figure. I used a high quality printed knit with good recovery stretch to it and used my dress form to get the right conformity on the neckline. I may shorten it for next summer for more wearability as a cute get-around-town dress.
