Medallion Dress

I ordered this Patrick Robinson dress on sale from target.com (for $10!) in May 2007 because i absolutely loved the print. I figured I could rework it into a style I would like.  

Alterations

  • adjusted the too long straps
  • ruched the center front area
  • removed the elastic around the “waist” and put ribbon over it
  • added another ribbon under the bust to give it a little extra shape
  • cut the hem
  • took it in under the arms because it was too big

I love love love the result🙂

Sorry for the picture quality!

    Your dress is sooo much more gorgeous than either of the two originals. I love the restyling you have done – it looks great on you too!
