The last time I wore this dress, it was...snug. That was 50 pounds ago.

Now it's time to make this dress wearable again. First, let's chop off the top portion, as well as the straps.

Check. Now let's create a new hem at the top and reattach the straps.

Done. How about that shirring on the back? It probably needs to be reinforced with some new elastic.

Great. And let's also take in the sides to add waist shaping to what was once the skirt portion.

Looking good. Slap on a $2 thrifted yellow leather belt and we're all set!
