Outfit: check wiggle dress

This outfit post is full of new - new dress, new tights AND new shoes - and it's not even Christmas yet!

Today, though, I'm going to tell you all about the dress. Because, for the first time in my life I considerably shortened and re-hemmed an item of clothing all by myself. Thus, transforming a cheap dress that wasn't quite right into something I can wear and not look awful in.

My lovely new dress started out life like this, and what was just below the knee on the website's model, was of course a much more modest Victorian-length gown on my 5 feet 2 inches...

But a pair of scissors, some pins and hem tape later, here it is 6 inches less later. Custom made, practically. Using hem tape was a bit fiddly but really quite easy - I have no technical ability at these kind of things whatsoever so if I can do it literally anyone can.

Dress: Boohoo (shortened considerably)
Belt: New Look (old)
Tights: Gypsy, from ASOS
Shoes: Clarks 'Ali Katelina'
