You guys, I saw this dress at the thrift store yesterday and I HAD to have it:
The entire thing is handmade and the flower embroidery is absolutely stunning. I also love the shade of green. Basically I just grabbed it and made ‘heart eyes’ at it. Oh, and it was $11.99 marked down to $8. So, I was physically unable to leave it behind. I mean, just LOOK at it!
The problem is… well…
Okay, I totally wouldn’t wear it over jeans, but I think you can see the issue. I look like I’m wearing a costume. My initial thoughts were to cut it into a blouse, kind of like the ones here.
But I’m worried about ruining the entire thing.
So, help me decide… should I:
Option A: Cut the top right where the bottom embroidery starts and hope it’s long enough to not be stumpy looking. Then, make something pretty like a pillow out of the bottom design. If it is too short, I could try to add some eyelet to the bottom like this Rebecca Taylor blouse I saw at Nordstrom Rack. It doesn’t seem too difficult…
Option B: Cut the top off through the bottom embroidery, ruining it. But giving myself extra room to hem to the most flattering angle.
Comment below and tell me what to do!
