Little green dress

This is a dress I had when I was still a kid. I really adore its green pattern and the pockets at the sides.

It's a bare-back dress. BUT, now that I've become taller and bogger, I found that I could'nt squeeze into the dress anymore. I could still slip into the dress but could not button the back.

So....can someone offer me some great advice on how i should go about altering it?

Do you think I should cut off the top and make the bottom half into a skirt?

Love the frills on the sleeves...too bad, I can't squeeze into the top of the dress....only the bottom half..

Please help! THanks!

Love ya!

Definitely make it into a skirt - it would be gorgeous! The colour is great.

Thanks for your suggestion! I will put up pictures of the altered dress. Hopefully soon!

Ever tried wearing it the other way round with a white top (perhaps something with lace on the rim) underneath? Might look cute if it works! Greetings from Germany! Tiffy
