I seriously think about resizing it to my own proportions but I´m not sure where to start. The good thing is that the shoulders and chest area fit perfectly. But I think I´ll have to separate the skirt from the bodice to make this thing work. You know what the lazy me has to say about that? Blargh!
Meanwhile, here´s the dress "before":
I grabbed all the excess fabric around the waist for this picture, but you can´t tell how much it is. The tips of my thumbs kinda mark my waist and my fists are completely filled with black velvet. (Sounds romantic, but it scares me.)
|I already moved the buttons back to their original positions inside|
the perfect yellow circles. Don´t tell anyone I´m a designer, ok? ;)
|Altered seams and what looks to me like belatedly added belt loops.|
|The collar is attached to the dress on one side, one closes it with|
press buttons. It was sewn on totally wonky.
|Sleeve detail. I´ll leave it like that.|
|I <3 that thing!|
|The butcher strikes back!|
I´m off to watch " The lady from Shanghai" :) now.
