Five Minute Dress Makeover

~Five Minute Dress Makeover~
This dress looked super cute in the thrift store.  Once I tried it on it was super frumpy!  It has a blousy top (hate those) and the length was all wrong (+ the bottom half of the skirt is too cute to simply cut short). 
In the changeroom I found the hem was easily brought up with a belt so decided to fork over the $5.  Once home I made the look complete with accessories and now I am sure this dress will get much use.  By next season I will most likely cut off the top half, sew it up and work with it as a long skirt/tube dress. I am so in love with it!!  2nd pic is clickable for more details. 😉

    Good Job:

    Keep it as shirt dress. It looks great already.
    A big green purse may be to add??

    I have a small green purse, no big one. You have a green bag I can use? 🙂 j.k
