I keep it pretty simple. I cut about 4 inches off he bottom. About 10 inches of the front sides. I removed the straps and rolled the tops over to insert long tie straps. I made a belt. It can be worn with or without the belt. I have never altered a pattern before. This was so much fun!
Stretchy satin for the dress and non stretchy gold satin for the straps and the belt.
