My mom has more time for yard sales than I do (much to my dismay) and she found this dress several weeks ago. Paid $2 for it.



Since it was WAY too big for my little princess we decided it needed to be cut down, re-sized and possibly restyled. This is what I came up with. (She thinks that it is the BEST dress EVER!!)



The back.



All in all, it wasn't bad for a $2 yard sale dress. All I invested was some elastic, thread, and TIME.  For those who are looking closely it has a safety pin holding the jacket closed. I plan on a gold frog closure for that. I just got excited and wanted to post NOW. Cheesy

Questions, comments, critiques are welcome and even insults are accepted with some degree of grace.  Wink
