I find almost impossible not to alter everything I buy, whether its adding different buttons, making t-shirts into dresses, making dresses into skirts. It means I'm left with a pile of half finished clothes and lots of good intentions. This time I actually managed to finish one of the many DIY projects I start.

First of all I had to change the horribly cheap looking buttons on it, great buttons are no longer hard to find thanks to Rubenesque. After Christmas it just seemed like I was never going to wear the dress again. So I decided to take off the ruffle/frill bit so it could be added to other outfits like so,
