The zipper only went to the waist and the rest of the dress buttoned. EEEEEK!!!
After thinking about it, I decided I just wanted to keep the skirt portion of the dress. It was high waisted and pencil shaped. I could work with it.
I took out me seam ripper and detached the top from the skirt.
I folded down the top and hemmed it down.
I put it on my dress form and took it in some and hemmed up the bottom.
Yeah it needs some ironing but I love this skirt and it is not black. So now I have some color in my wardrobe. And it is work appropriate! Yay!
