Tasha brought in that beautiful dress that had some major potential but also had those SLEEVES!!  They made the dress look way too old, but the detail work was so amazing!

Tasha was thinking the sleeves could be removed altogether. I also suggested that we could keep the sleeves but get rid of the bias cut bells, and she was on board.

So we cut away the weird netting that was on the inside of the sleeve, hemmed the sleeves right below the bottom stripe, and there you have it!

Now this dress is ready to run around this Summer with adorable sandles, and prepped to strut into Fall paired with sweater tights and a cute cardi or blazer! Here is the lovely pic of Tasha modelling her “new” dress!
