Little black dress

My best friend's mom gave me this dress because it was too small for her. I really liked it to begin with, but I felt like I could do something more to it.


Crafts

Instructions

  1. How to make a strappy dress. Reconstructed Dress - Step 1 1

    As you can see, it had the big glittery wrap around thing on the shoulders, and that had to go.

    So I carefully cut off that.

  2. 2

    Once I had that off, I cut off the strings that held the dress up.

  3. 3

    Then I drew a line creating a deep v-neck into the dress and cut along that, then pinned back the extra fabric.




  4. 4

    Once I had that, I made the back of the dress into a straight line...

  5. How to make a strappy dress. Reconstructed Dress - Step 5 5

    And whalla!

Tas is right, if you cut the glitterly bit into shape it could make a nice belt, for either the dress or for some other peice of clothing. Very nice dress though

you should use the glittery wrap thing as a belt/cummerbund on your dress. It would look great.
