My new bargain!

I took a little shopping trip the other day and had a look at the Urban Outfitters sale, usually I can never find anything for me buuuut I came across this dress! It was originally £52 and was marked down to just £5, I was quite impressed! It was a size small which was a bit too big for me and as I’m only short it was far too long – coming halfway down my shins. I do love midi dresses but I think they would only look right on me if it was fitted well and coming just below my knees so it isn’t too long to make me look even shorter.
I love to sew and my grandma taught me when I was only 7 or so! We used to practise different stitches together, that may be where I get my love of clothes from! I pinned and tacked the dress from the inside-out and then sewed and over locked the edges to keep it from fraying, cutting away the excess material. Taking up the hem is always straightforward, it now comes just above my knees and fits me exactly!
I really love it, especially the neon orange and the fishnet exposed back! What do you think??
