Since my last project was such an epic failure, I thought I would re-share a past refashion that turned out lovely. : )
I was invited to a Wild West Most Wanted themed Hitchin' (wedding), and needed a 20s style saloon dress. So I hit the thrift stores hoping to find something fun and glamorous to wear. Without success and time running out I decided I could sew something I found in the thrift store into something suitable to wear.
I started with an ugly velvet ruffly floor length skirt with lovely lace at the bottom. I pulled the skirt up above my chest, took it in a lot while giving it some shape, then I used the leftover lace from the bottom of the skirt to make a fun strappy back. Added some much needed accessories … and success!
The themed wedding was so much fun!
