So we decided very last minute to go to New York for the Dresden Dolls Masquerade Ball on new years eve I wanted to look spectacular but had no time to make a whole ball gown so I took an old bridesmaid dress I had lying around and a vinyl skirt I had made years ago put them together and threw a cute corset that was store bought on top, the result....... Fabulous ball gown for $0.
no picture of the dress before but here it is after I did some minor adjustments

no action shots because someone else took the pictures and I have yet to get them but we had a great time and the dress was perfect!!
