DIY Dress Makeover

I was attached to this 80's dress the moment I saw it. I think it just had something to do with the color and I love the pleated shoulders but I did not like the long sleeves and wanted to make it a little more modern so I chopped the sleeves off. I haven't even hemmed them yet and not sure if I'm going to. I'm a fan of raw edges but I almost wanted a more clean hem for this dress but the lazy side of me hasn't attempted it yet. I also chopped off the length as well but not a lot of it. I'm still not sure if I'm going to hem this part either but I probably will. I wore it once to work already and I liked the light fabric and think it will be perfect for the warmer weather.
