Several weeks ago, I wrote a post on looking frumpy. You can read it here:
Here is something that was definitely frumpy:
For today’s post, I decided to see if I could rescue this dress, rather than send it away. At first I tried adding some accessories and trying to style it to see if I could make anything work:
These were better, but it is still a bit on the frumpy side. After looking at it, it was obvious that the main thing wrong with the dress was the length. (Not to mention the horrible shoes which immediately went in the Goodwill bag LOL)
I am not very good at sewing, but I figured that even I could hem up a dress with some Stitch Witchery, so I started with that.
As you can see, the dress looks better already, just by changing the length. The next step in the process is to experiment with different accessories and try to make an outfit. Here are the results of that:
Just for fun, here are the similar versions side by side:
Do you see how much difference the length makes?!! So…..memorize this rule: “If your dress is too long, it is frumpy”
Do you think I should keep this dress? If so, which look do you like the best? I really do value your opinions, and would appreciate hearing from you. As I have said before, I am on a journey and still have much to learn.
Thanks for reading, and please comment!
P. S. The little girl in the photo is the reason I have not posted much in the past few weeks. I had the great pleasure of having my sweet seven-year old granddaughter with me for four weeks.
