So I made this dress from a huge unflattering dress I found at a garage sale.  I took off the skirt, attached it to a bodice (my first try at princess seams!) and made matching straps.  You can't see, but it also has pockets on the front of the skirt which I looove!  If you guys have any critiques, either about the photos or about the dress construction, I would love to hear them!

We all make mistakes, and then when you've made enough, they call it experience.
