This is a skirt that was originally a dress that I wore to my high school semi-formal. That was some seven years ago now. When I bought it, it had spaghetti straps. Being the fussy teenager that I was, I wanted it strapless. So I had it altered. Then I never wore it again. And I probably never would have because these days I make a point not to wear strapless anything. Anyway, the material was just too lovely to leave lying in the back of my wardrobe so I decided it needed to be altered one final time. I’m quite happy with the end result and I’m positive I will be getting a lot more wear out of it from now on.
