The dress ended up being more of a project than I thought it would, but I love the end result, and there were no major headaches along the way, so I’m okay with it.  I shortened the sleeves, and cut off about 9 inches of length.  I also removed the weird collar and green polka-dot fabric thinking that maybe I would leave it as a v-neck.  After removing all that, I realized that the v-neck was just way too deep and weird-looking.  I ended up removing the middle front of the bodice entirely, and replacing it with a portion of the 9 inches of hem that I had cut off earlier.  Voila, it all worked out!

Deets:
Dress: Goodwill, $5
Shoes: Don’t remember, $10
Earrings: Old Navy, $3
Total damages: $18
