The Black Beaded Skirt?

Hello Refashion Co-op. I found a skirt so lovely I decided to make it a dress. As a skirt it was just a little too big and long. I could have fixed the big but if I hemmed the length I would have ruined the beading.

I added some straps made of grosgrain ribbon. So far, so good.

I took in the sides of the skirt so it fit a little better. I took in a little more than this.

I tuned the back zipper into a deep V and added a ribbon sash at the waist to give the dress some shape. I also closed up the slit at the bottom hem. It was too high now that this was a dress.

I made some wrong turns along the way but I was really happy with the end result. And no beads were harmed in this refashion. For more pictures and details go to I Can Work With That.
