I found this dress at a thrift store and thought it had potential, but it was too long and slightly boring. So I shortened it about 5 inches and added some ribbon to the side using a small grommet set I picked up at Walmart for about $5.
First image is the before. I put the dress on and pinned where I wanted the top and bottom of the lace to be.
Unfortunately, it's still fairly plain and I'd like to add some lace to it in the future.
