Purple Dress Refashion

Hi! I was attending an event where I needed to wear a long purple formal gown.

I started with this dress that has this AMAZING shoulder bow but a really awkward middle. I tried cutting it apart and placing it differently but after 2 hours, I decided the middle needed to leave permanently. 

with the middle removed, I took the bottom which was a circle skirt and added it back.

The result was really fun to wear and twirl around in!

Here is the tutorial.  
Happy Sewing!

I agree the middle was very dated. You made it into a lovely new dress.

Not dated anymore! Much more modern! Great job!

Very cute! So much better without the unflattering ruching down the center.
