I wanted to make this big sack looking dress fit like a 50s style shirt dress. It's a size 8 petite, and that's too big.
And here's where you're saying, "Cool, now it's time to hem it up to the thighs!" And when I say that I'm keeping the length, you be like, "Dang, girl, why are your dresses so damn long? Are you part of a strict religion that leg shames?"
No, damn it. I just like retro styles and dislike my short, white legs. I'm trying to go for a 50s, housewife-y looking dress with this. I would have to go through my button stash because I did not want to keep those boring-ass matching fabric ones already in place. I wanted something interesting but small, and after my edit, I needed seven.
Here it is!
