Cross-posted in Halloween album!
For Halloween, I was Marie Antoinette!

Found an old size 8 prom dress, took it in to a size 0, cut and hemmed it, added extra tulle in a bubble hem to add modernity and fullness, made and attached the ribbon/ rhinestone button detailing by, and added the Swarovski crystal beads around the top and in the bodice/ribbon detailing by hand.  Tiara and all extra jewelry was bought.
Hope you all liked!

OOOOH! Sooo pretty!
I really like the pink ribbon ties, were they there before or did you add them to the dress?

Nice idea! My mum made me a marie antoinette dress about 6 years ago, but this is a lot younger and more hip. (my mums one was pretty though...)
