I finally figured out how to make this dress wearable. I cut it open down the center front.
Then used some fabric from an out grown black velvet skirt of my sister's to finish the unfinished edges.
Some decorative stitches, a bit of elastic, a covered hook and eye, and I had a very wearable long cardigan!
Check out the whole process in my original blog post!
Happy New Year!
