I found this 100% silk dress at a thrift shop. Silk is challenging to work with for me but I love the fabric so much that it's worth it. It's far too big and too long but thats perfect- I need the extra material to not mess up this refashion! Here is the dress in all it's dowdiness:
A little 90's, a little err.... something!
This dress was a lot of work to refashion. I love the results though! I took it in and made it shorter. Then I used the extra fabric to create layers on top of the skirt, and a belt. There are a ton of pictures from the process on my blog post about this dress. Please stop by there to see all the images. I also go into complete detail on how I did everything too!
