This dress is better than new. It's old, beloved and refashioned!
A long time ago I bought a strapless, polkadotted dress - and wore it only once or twice.
Now it has straps (so I don't always feel like I need to hold it up), a little selfmade cherry brooch (detachable) and a cute free-motion embroidered birdie.
