The waistline ended up at a weird level between empire and natural waisted so I moved it more in the empire direction. The back also gaped a lot so I took it in.
It's still not perfect but I think it looks better, especially with a vintage belt.
My hair is kind of in a weird grow out phase so I've been wearing hats more often. They cover any hair weirdness plus keep your head warm.
My faux fur booties were also a must on such a chilly day!
Overall, I'm glad this dress is wearable again! Maybe this will inspire me to dig more into my "to fix" pile so I can have some more pieces in my winter wardrobe.
