I had this dress in my closet for awhile, never wore it, gave it to a friend (I think she wore it once), I asked for it back (yes, you can do that!), and have been wearing it since.
The first time I wore it (with the denim jacket) I still felt like it was a bit much fabric for me. Therefore, it was time for some alterations! I took the bodice off the skirt, took about 3 inches off on each side of the skirt and reattached it to the bodice. As you can see in the second photo, it's not as full which makes it a little sleeker.
If you don't sew, find yourself a great tailor, it can revitalize your wardrobe!
