Once upon a time a girl went to prom in a white prom dress.



 Many years later she pulled the prom dress from her closet and decided to remake the dress into something better.

She began by pulling off the old tulle and removing the halter straps. She then braided some red organza and trimmed the dress with the braids creating straps. She also covered the skirt in the same red organza. To complete her dress she added a red satin belt with a rhinestone buckle.

And Voila,

Front,


Back,


Close up,

Wow, fantastic job Smiley

I love the changes you made, especially to the skirt, and I like the fact you can still see the original skirt underneath Smiley

I can't believe that's the same dress!  It's beautiful.

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.
