For months, it lay under my closet along with other hopefuls (yes, I have pieces of clothing that used to fit years ago in a vacuum bag , still hoping and waiting for another chance to see the light) until I dug it up and decided that I was going to do something about it. Out came the scissors and the threads and the packet of needles. I snipped the straps at the back, sewed on maroon waist ties that I had cut off another top and voila! With longer straps, somehow the dress no longer dug into my arm pits, fit my bust area quite nicely and added a few inches of length. (Take that, my 4th year highchool Home Economics teacher who refused to accept my messy stitches and last-minute projects.)
Aaand because I am not the best when it comes to sewing, I wore a jacket so no one could see
PS: Someone mentioned I should have used "oxblood" instead of maroon. Is it the same color?
