My brother in law is getting married this Friday.  I got a call from his fiancee a week ago saying she wanted my daughter to be a jr. bridesmaid instead of a candlelighter.  Since I figured it would be difficult to find a dress in time, I raided my closed and used the material from a bridesmaid dress of my own (which just happened to be in the same color as my future sister in law) and came up with this.  Here's my before & after photo:



I most of the dress for this one - the organdy overlay and lining for the dress, the satin straps and broach for the "ribbon bow", and even ripped out the zipper for the back of the dress!

wow! that's spectacular! you did an amazing job. i love how you reused stuff - the ribbon bow/broach is great. i'm impressed with how well it fits her and how "real" it looks (i agree with the others - i would have never known it was a recon). she looks really pretty in it, too. Smiley
