Mizzie Modifies: DIY Fashion - The Ill-Fitting Dress

This dress has never been worn.  I didn't like it because it was to wide in the waist, too short in the skirt, and I didn't know what to wear with it. 
To fix the problem of the ill-fitting dress I just put some darts in the back of the dress and took out the hem to make it a couple of inches longer. 
Then I set aside some time to try it with some pieces from my closet with the goal that I would not buy anything new to go with it.
Here is the finished product?

Now I know some of you have done some modifying of your own. DON'T be shy. Send me the photos I would love to post them!
