That dress looks great on her!

The braided strap was ingenious. I love it.

This is such a beautiful dress.  I love the colour, and the shear fabric over the bust and braided over the shoulder looks so nice!  Good job the recon!

Aw, thanks for all of the sweet compliments everyone! Cheesy  I'm particularly proud of this dress, it came out exactly as I had sketched it. The entire dress is re-purposed material: the base dress is shown, but the lining was from an old nightie, the corset back loops are links from a necklace, etc.

Unfortunate dress to lovely garment... I absolutely love that braided chiffon shoulder...

And what a great challenge for your class, to re-purpose something that nobody else can see the potential in.

Good eye! and Good job!

Thanks! It actually wasn't for a class- I'm home schooled, and since I'm graduating this year and going on to study design and merchandising, I decided to organize a recycled charity fashion show as my senior project.  Smiley We completed eighteen outfits (nineteen if you count the dress i wore). I upcycled half of them, and a friend who intends to study fashion design did the other half. It was crazy, but fun, and we managed it  Roll Eyes
