    you can certainly wear it over something… like a slip dress, possibly. but being that it was spring/summer she wanted to wear it as a dress :)

    Really good transformation. It’s so much more girly – which I love!

    Really clever transformation, two garments in one, a trench coat still and a beautiful dress. they don’t do trench coats like that anymore—in fact no one ever did— so well done!
