Well, maybe not. I have to admit, after I took this pic, I totally wore this around the house for the rest of the evening.  I mean, it's so comfy.  But, that's not as much fun as a refashion!  So the next day I got to work.  The first thing I did was cut off the bottom ruffle. I thought I might take in the sides to make it fit better, but then I got a better idea - create a waist with elastic!  I turned it inside out and pinned elastic to the waist like so

Then I just sewed the elastic on!  After that I reattached the ruffle and took out the sleeves. I was able to pull down the ruffle on top to make it off the shoulder!  I ended up taking in the sides a couple inches just on the top portion above the elastic. And voila!
