Dressember 2018; Dress 8

Hello Refashion Co-op. This is the last dress in my Dressember series. I wanted to highlight their work to fight human trafficking.
This dress was just too long on me. It had a black lining that ended at knee length and the lace continued to floor length. Actually, it continued to drag on the floor because I am pretty short. (Really short. Like super-short.)

I had a lot of trouble photographing this dress. Here is a close up of the material. It was really pretty.

 I decided to cut the dress off where the lining ended. I didn't hem it though. I had an idea.

I decided to use that extra lace to make a ruffle along the bottom of the dress. 

I attached the ruffle so it would be just below the lining. The sheer ruffle is a nice balance to the sheer sleeves.

Thanks for reading along, for more pictures and details go to I Can Work With That.
And Happy New Year to all of you!

The ruffle was a great idea. It adds just the right amount of detail.
