It was in one piece, however the entire front of the dress was in two pieces...
...and the sleeves along with the bottom of the dress were shredded and pulling.
Tattered is just the thing to call this one. I wore it to a little "since Monday is a holiday, we're going out on a school night" party last eve and will have all the after photos up later today!
Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!! Such a wonderful day to reflect on all the goodness he brought our way and a reminder to continue doing (and being) good to others.
