The fabric instantly drew my attention, from a distance it could be any old floral print, but take a closer look and it reminds me of that classic 80's videogame.....
As mentioned before, this dress is handmade so there are no tags. I am not sure if it is vintage, or vintage inspired, but that doesn't matter. Trying it on in Salvos, I had to see past those frills and its length. It is a maxi dress you see, and maxi dresses on a short-arse look like tents.

So, it is off with those frills, and hack off the length. Looky here, I found a little helper..
A quick tidy up of the bottom hem, stitch up the armholes, and here it is, a 'new' computerised flower mini dress. Much less tent-like, and so much better without the frilly arms
