This dress was my first-ever purchase from Modcloth:
Totally cute, totally interesting to look at, totally too short. I wore it a couple time with leggings, but it was just so, so short that I never felt comfortable in it; plus, I have the kind of legs that just don't look good in leggings, so I still want to conceal them. I finally reached the conclusion that this dress is just not a dress for me, but it is a shirt. The only problem with that conclusion, is that this shirt has an elastic band really, really high. It doesn't look like it in the picture, but it's right below the boobs.

I've contemplated for a while trying to shorten the skirt to make some kind of tunic, but the fabric is slippery nylon and hard to sew, so I fretted that I'd make this already unwearable dress even more unwearable. I've come up with two potential solutions to this issue, and I now put it to the group for some feedback.
