polka dot sheers & berry burch.

I frequently buy things that don't fit me, this is especially so with maxi skirts or dresses. Two Christmas's ago I bought this gorgeous sheer polka dot maxi dress from Cotton On (see dress here) but much to my efforts of trying to wear this dress out without tripping over myself every couple of steps I decided to do something I had never done before, alter the dress myself. I'm one of those people who have grand ideas of alterations but when cut comes to sew the project quickly becomes a disaster. I had huge hesitations of cutting up my beloved polka dot dress but decided it would be for the better, and it was. I can now wear this dress as a maxi skirt and not trip on it - win!!
