This is why I love post-prom clearance sales. This number started as a $150 Hailey Logan dress which I snagged for $7 the year before last post-prom. I don’t know what I was thinking when I bought it because really it doesn’t even cover me up standing straight up, let alone in any other positions. But I couldn’t just give up the ruched tulle and sequins, so I found some jersey knit at Joann fabrics that was a pretty close match to the lining of the dress, cut off the bodice, and made a tie-back waist band.
It’s still short. But that should give you an idea of exactly how short the original was on me :-)
