I made this dress because I love the fabric and the batwing pattern but I wasn't wearing it. So I added a higher button at the neck to make it sit up on my shoulders better (it tended to slide  back) and shortened it.



Yeah, I might be wearing it now. 


And I am pretty pleased with my new glasses from clearly contacts for $52. Score. And they are very comfortable.

I do like your jacket and shortening the dress made it perfect!

Wherever did you find glasses for this low price? It is amazing how much difference adding a button made--it took the look from a dress to a quite wonderful tunic. I'm here from Visible Monday.

Thanks Debbi and Terri, I emailed you about "clearly contacts" the place to order the glasses from.

Wow you really changed the 'mood' of the dress ! Looks great with the black tights. I'm about to purchase my first set of glasses that aren't from the dollar store ;)

Your addition of the button at the neck and raising of the hemline were inspired but simple ideas to save this garment, and I like how you have paired this dress with black tights and belt. You look great! I also enjoy seeing your paintings. Thanks.
