What a Little Hemming Can Do

In it's previous life, this dress was floor-length. Way too much big, bold print for lil ol' me! The graphics on the fabric would overpower my frame. But since I loved the pattern and colors, I chopped it off above the knee and made a minidress. The little bit of leg helps ground the print. Adds neutral space. I'm currently working on altering another dress. More of a jumper, but same idea ... making a crazy vintage dress wearable and modern.
