Going to need a cocktail dress soon -- moreover, one that's easy-on, easy-off. (Quick costume change and not ruining my makeup. Get your mind out of the gutter. Unless you're a particularly hot smart boy, in which case had you considered coming to RAW Provocations?) Considering chopping this one off above the knee. Thoughts?
No worries about sacrificing art; it's a $15 dress from Ross. It's synthetic stretch, so a rolled hem would keep it from shredding, if it had any tendencies to come apart in the first place. The skirt is full enough to wear over a rockabilly petticoat, although the waist is just short of empire, so I'm not sure how that would look.
