Dress Alteration

I bought this dress at Sears about 4 years ago.  It had a belt around the waist and little belt/buckle things on the rolled sleeves.  The sleeve things reminded me waaaay too much of the horrid '80s, but I still wore the dress that way for a couple years.

As I have gotten more confident in my sewing, and some of the dress seams needed some repairs, I thought I'd cut off the sleeve belt things, shorten the rolled sleeves, and convert the waist belt to ruffles on my sleeves.  It's a little hard to see details in the picture, but I definitely like the whole thing better.
