I can't believe that was ever an ugly 80's dress!

i loved your blog post on this! i think you should call it superhero dress :)

the buttons & stitching are beyond stellar.

This is an awesome upcycle. I love the stitching on the yoke and the buttons, too. If you do go for a crinoline, that pink color is a great contrast!
