To Modify or Not to Modify?
That is the question I ask myself when I buy something I like that is not quite what I was expecting. For this week's Sew Stylings Poll, I want your thoughts on my decision to modify this dress into a skirt instead. I tried it out as a skirt and loved it! However, I would love to hear your thoughts on which you prefer.
To Modify or Not to Modify? Skirt vs. Dress
So here's the deal:
I recently snagged a really cute navy blue tiered ruffle dress. By now, you all know how much I love ruffles. You can never go wrong with a ruffle in my book (as I'm sure I have said many times before). ;)
Well, I was in a hurry when I bought this dress and didn't get to try it out but you know me and ruffles. So of course I bought it. When I got home and tried it on, it just wasn't working for some reason. I didn't really want to return this dress because it really is a lovely fabric and I love navy blue as well. I tried tucking in the top of the dress to create it a skirt and I actually really liked it.
However, before I make the commitment to permanently modify this dress, I wanted to see what you all think. I'm certainly leaning more towards modifying it into a skirt (and making something else with the remaining top part) but I'm open to opinions on the matter. Skirt or dress? ;)
