So as I explained earlier, I had a party to go to but didn't have anything to wear. So I took an old dress (which I have loved, but have worn far too much) and updated it. I was hoping to completely transform it but I didn't manage that. Here is the dress before alteration (yes, I do have arms, I just didn't want them in the picture).
an old lace headband
some purple ribbon
I also managed to get some netting. And here is what I ended up with...
Apologies for the poor quality photograph but it was the end of the night before I realised that I hadn't photographed my dress and the light wasn't great. After wearing it for an evening, I was actually much more pleased with my alterations.
Not bad for someone who can't sew, huh? Although to be honest it was mostly ripping involved. I'm happy.
Now I must continue with the packing.
