What can I get for this?

What can you get for $1.25 and an hour of free time?

My latest thrift store revival.

Hideous!

I took about 5 inches off each side and still wasn't crazy about the dress. So I cut it short. I'm thinking about adding some kind of ruffle. Maybe something like this from JCrew:

What do you think?

You are amazing. I wouldn't have seen the potential in that. I like it like it is, but the ruffle idea sounds good too.

I have been very fascinated with refashioning but I haven't been able to make the first cut. I'm afraid of messing up but you have no fear and your projects turn out great.
