I friend was getting rid of some old bridesmaid dresses floating around her dorm and I got this one. I shortened the hem and took off the sleeve cutting the armholes into a slight racer-back shape. It also had two waist ties which I removed and used to bind the new armholes. I’m delighted with how it turned out.
