My teen daughter bought a 1940's wedding dress from a rummage sale. After we had a fun princess photo session with it, she decided she wanted to make it into something she would actually wear out.
Here is the Before and After:
She began by ripping out the sleeves, and chopping off a good length. I then dipped it into a hunter green dyebath, and it came out this incredible marbled purple!
I finished off the sleeves, neckline, and hemline.
