Dress Refashion

I found this black dress at Goodwill, and decided it would be perfect for a remake! I wanted something dark to wear my new galaxy leggings with.



And, yes, the first thing I did was remove those terrible white buttons. Then I added a high-low hem, with a line of lace on the bottom (you can't really see it) and I also added some lace to the top. Somehow when altering this, I made the bust really small. I had to squeeze into it. 

I am sure you will see this dress make an appearance in a more photogenic setting one day, but for now this is all you get. My husbands computer area and me. Hah. 

The finished dress reminds me of something out of the 20s, kinda flapper style? I really like it and can't wait to wear it out somewhere!

  2. What a huge improvement! It looks so cute now- I wouldn't have even guessed it was the same dress. :)
    P.S. Thank you *so* much for the box of books. That really made my day!

  3. The lace definitely gives it a bit of an olden-times feels! And yes, like the others said, it looks like a totally different dress!
