I found a linen dress on sale from £20 to £6 today. I can't find anything wrong with it. It is supposed to be my size, but for someone with weightlifter shoulders I think! So, I will take it apart and recut it using my own pattern. It will only need changing in the shoulder area, so the pin tucks and ruffles will remain as they are. It is a bit too short for my liking, so I think I will change it to a blouse.

I am not sure about how the sleeves will adapt, but I may be able to do something with the excess at the bottom of the dress if I can't get the original ones to work after the alteration.
