WEARING/ Altered Floral Dress

I'm on a mission : To turn grandma clothes cute. I wouldn't call them ugly (even though some are) because they were considered cute at one point or another. I found this floral dress while thrifting with Tiara. She gave me the ugliest look when I told her I was buying this dress to make it cute again.

The dress is originally a size 14 and I'm a size XS, so there was a ton of excess fabric I needed to trim. I had to fix the shoulders because it was way past where it should be, brought the skirt so that it sits at my waist, fixed the outdated puff sleeve and took in from the sides. I'm proud to say that this is a dress I would totally wear now! This is the reason why I buy a ton of old people/grandma clothes from the thrift store hah.
