Greek Goddess Refash

I purchased this dress at a thrift store that I don't normally visit. I picked it up without really knowing what to do with it. I thought it was kinda ugly and hopeless. 
the light bulb in my brain turned on!
Let's take a closer look at that fabric...DSCN0561Ohh so shiny!
DSCN0562Take a hike poofy shoulder pads!!!
My bright idea was to turn this into a type of greek goddess toga.
DSCN0563I seam ripped the shoulder seams.
RSCN0565I removed this weird piece of fabric from the inside of the neckline. It was seriously cramping my style. I like to call this annoying piece of fabric the bib.
DSCN0569I had to mark where I wanted to sew my clasps. Seeing the toga-ish design?
DSCN0575 Greek goddess toga? Hmmm I'm leaning more toward 1930's Hollywood glam!
We went to the Fox Theatre to see Riverdance! I have been waiting to see Riverdance live since I was 9 or 10 years old​!!! Let me tell you it was so amazing! Totally worth the wait!

Hi there! I'm subscribed to the Refashion Co-op feed, which is delivered to my inbox. I just wanted to let you know that your images show up in the email all stretched and much too large. I don't have the same issue with other posts in the feed. Thanks!

Thank you for your feedback. I will be looking into this and hepefully fixing it soon!

Marisa Glied said...

Thank you so much! I love the blue too!

Marisa Glied said...

Thank you! I'm happy it turned out so well! I agree it was still a very nice design before!

Marisa Glied said...

Thank you so much :)

Another clever refashion! I find your photos come out weird in the emails, also. It's not bad if yours is the last one in the email, but it's really hard to get to any after yours :-(
Keep up the great work!

Marisa Glied said...

Thank you!
I'm looking into the photo issue also.

I also have problems with your photos, and only yours, when I see the posts from my mobile/cell phone. Some of them simply don't show up. I suspect it might be because your photos are in a very high resolution.

Apart from that: Great dress.
