Dress Of Too Many Colors?

So, Every once in a while my mum would get our seamstress in Nigeria to sew my sister and i something nice. Its always fun to see what she comes up with. Howeeeever, i was presented with this dress. My sister and i had a good 'ol laugh. I'm not too keen on it. I like the print but the style is just omg too much. I was thinking of taking off the sleeves, in fact changing the whole top half of the dress. That is when i get my sewing machine. should i just leave it as is? or just throw it away? All opinions welcome :)

P.S. 56 Followers! Thanks to everyone who is following our blog :) means alot to us

  1. Lola, I actually really like it. I like the pattern not so much the shape of the dress but I say keep it and yeah maybe take the sleeves off or something... Would be interesting to see what you do with it.
