help with this dress! DifferentDay Due June 2; 34 kids; Tennessee 3467 posts

I hate the style of this dress. It's outdated. I love the material though. Any simple tips to make it more modern? I'm not great on a sewing machine but if there's instructions/youtube vid I can usually figure it out. The fringe-y lace at the chest portion is a separate layer. You can kinda see in the original pic what it looks like without. I think it can be removed. I was hoping dd2 could wear it Saturday to dd1's 4th bday party. Yes I dyed it pink.

Quoting Tweakrachie:" get rid of the sleeves?"

I was thinking that too. And maybe a belt or some ribbon to give the waist shape.
