I have a good one for you today !
I went shopping into my own wardrobe this time. I have had this dress FOREVER ! It is one of those 90's LONG dress. As I am barely 5 foot 2, this dress was overwhelming me three times ! Here is what it looked like before:
|Really pitiful... And to say I wore this proudly at one time...|
A very BIG red dress with a LACED back ! Not flattering AT ALL...
So I picked up my shears and cut the length, cut out those pesky shoulder pads. As I did not like the tacky metal buttons, which had bled over the fabric, I busted out my fancy-shmancy rhinestone zipper from Moods NYC ! So happy I could use that thing ! And since the dress is made to fit anyone from size 6 to size 14 it seems, I had to finagle my straps because I was swimming in them ! Here is the result:
I am SO happy with it ! You can see more photos on my blog Sewliltime.
