Closet Cleanout Part 2

So I slept on it, and I pulled out one of the pieces I was going to donate.

It's a sack (talk about earth mother). But it's in my favorite color.


The photo above shows the dress untied. I am wearing my street clothes underneath it.


And here it is tied (am still wearing jeans and tshirt beneath it). Forgive the foggy appearance. I need to clean my wardrobe mirrors....

And here is the detail on the bodice which is one of the main reasons I pulled it back out again. See, I could cut up this dress and use it in my purple fabric book (that's not even started yet), but it is a perfectly good dress, which was the reason why I consigned it to the toss pile. If it didn't feel so much like a sack on and if the sleeves weren't so giant, I'd keep it. (It's from Holy Clothing, btw, I have a number of their skirts and tops. Love love their skirts)

Can I do that? Can I cut up a perfectly good dress? Mum, do you want it? (And if you do, you're going to have to hem the dickens out of it, I trip over it all the danged time.)

What would you do?

Lar you look fantastic, cut it up and then you still get to enjoy even if not as a wearable.
