My Refashioned Romance

Instead of a bright red or pink outfit, I decided to go for a more feminine, romantic look for Valentine's Day this year. As luck would have it, a friend had given me this lovely floral dress a few months ago. Add to that a bit of lace from a pale pink piece of lingerie from my heavier days, and I've got just the thing for this weekend's holiday!

I removed the rosettes, sleeves, and ruffles from the dress. I took in the sides, finished the raw edges, and added a couple little belt loops. Then, I removed the lace border from my delicates and attached it to the bottom of the dress.

It's been a cloudy, dreary day, but this fun new dress has breathed a little more life into it!
