A little light transformation!

Darling Curtise sent me some splendid frocks a wee while back, and much as I love this one, it's too small, and not around my booboids for a change!
(Amazing!)
So.
I thought about it, and then I decided to take it apart and reconstruct it so I could be fabularsehole in it!
 What did I do?
I took out the zip and then cut it in half!
Then I cut the bottom in half again,split the panels,stiched it all togther, gathered it,added a green satin ruffle and restitched it back on to the bodice!
Then put the zip back in, added some green satin around the neckline, took off the sleeves and tidied them up!
I'm quite pleased with it, and now I can wear it!
I'm going to wear it to see The Dresden Dolls tomorrow night!!!
Looking forward to it like a lizard digs sunshine!
Here is a fab interview with the splendiferous Ms Amanda fucking Palmer !

Loving the colour, and how cleverly you re-shaped it. I love the more 'party frock' shape, it seems to go so playfully with the green and texture!
