I might have cut this just a little too short.
Okay, so i definitely cut it a lot too short !
I don’t really mind very short dresses, but i don’t think my parents would let me go out wearing this ! Maybe with some thick black tights it’ll be okay.
I found a way of wearing it that’s alright (last photos). Sorry about the look in them, i’d just got out of bed haha.
The reason it got so short is the pattern along the edge. I didn’t want to make it too long and not be able to shorten it (not wanting to cut the patterned bit off), because i nerver wear long dresses.
Oh and I love the button i used at the back :)
