DIY Dress Do-Over

I loved the dress the moment I saw it in J. Crew. The bright Kool-Aid color was perfect without being a queasy pink or purple hue. I wore it to host a blogger event in Miami and received mulitple compliments and slipped it on again for a TV segment. But after just a few wearings, the silk fabric on the sleeves was pulling and my dress started taking a turn for the worse. DIY to the rescue! I knew there was a better life to be had as a sleeveless dress and with a few snips, scissor and thread my love for this dress was renewed. It now ranks in the top 10 of my summer dresses. What do you think of the “new” version of the dress?
