on the chopping block

I purchased this dress back in the summer and had the bodice taken in for a better fit but I think that this dress is on its' way back to the seamstress.  While I love a long dress, I feel that this one is a little 'too much of a good thing' and think that if I shorten it to 'mini'mize the length it might become 'just enough of a good thing'! For the memories I had to photograph it first.  I'll be sure to repost pics of the dress once it is reborn.  

I would love to hear your opinion, send me a comment to let me know if you agree.

  1. fits beautifully now that it's been altered. but agree that short might be better...would look less 'costumey'. love the bold colours. can't wait to see the finished product.
