Bought a floor lenght slip form the salvation army.  dyed it blue and redid the hem by adding more material.  Came up with this...

Close up of the bottom...

Decided it wasn't really practical for anything.  So went at it again.  Cut off the hem.  Redyed it.  The colors weren't what i was hoping for. lost that pretty light blue and black dye did nothing.  added a ribbon on the bottom and a peacock feather iron on.  It's a bit short for my taste. i would probably wear pants under it.

Close up of peacock feather and new hem...

What do you guys think?  Should I have left it?

I really like the final color you ended up with.

The second version definitely looks like a dress you might find at a boutique, and the color suits you very well. Smiley

I like both ways.  The peacock feather is very cute.

I like this transformation.
The first one looks to me like really pretty, flowy pj's.  The final version looks much more wearable for out-of-the-house...it looks more thought out and put together. And I love the colour of the final dress. Gorgeous!  Smiley
