I've been a bit bored with my closet, lately. So, I decided to snazz up one of my all time favorite trapeze dresses with a little alteration to allow for a belt. A snip here, a snip there and voila- a completely new silhouette! I love the way that it flows now, and it gave me enough spark to be satisfied with the dress for a while longer. Outside of this, I've been pretty busy with little projects, and I've been busy loving this warm weather. Now all I need is for the estate sale season to start up again *fingers crossed*.

Omy! This is soooo brilliant! Rather than belting the entire dress...snip snip business in the front and party in the back! I love this! {Actually gonna steal it and letcha know how it goes :D}

Wow, you altered the dress beautifully! I love the cape effect, yet how deceptive the belt has an all-around look. Very pretty, girl!
