a while back, i participated in a trade on etsy for this lovely red silk caftan dress, which was pretty long and flowy. i liked the flowiness for things like summery outings and cocktails on the beach, but for every day wear in the city, i thought it needed a little makeover.
i didn't want to permanently cut off the dress. so, going from this long length, i folded up the hem a few times, then put a hand slip stitch hem in place.
so, right now it's a nice short frock for city-wear, but i'm planning on pulling the thread and letting loose the long caftan for upcoming beach days.
