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...Ohh so shiny!
Take a hike poofy shoulder pads!!!
My bright idea was to turn this into a type of greek goddess toga.
I seam ripped the shoulder seams.
I 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.
I had to mark where I wanted to sew my clasps. Seeing the toga-ish design?
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!
