All of it was bought from Savers. Ugly 80's dress ($4.99), fleece-like blanket/sheet/thing ($1.49) and a huge bag of fake leaves ($3.49). I'm a big fairy nut so I decided to make a fae-ish outfit.

Top before:


I cut it out into this shape...

...used my hot glue gun to atatch all the leaves and cut holes along the back to thread the laces through.

Bottom before:


I cut up the bottom, sewed up the side and gave it a waistband.

side:


back:

Wow! the dress dosent even look a lil bit like the original, you did a really good job. I think my favorite part of it though is the corsset style back!

I love faries too, i have an awesome lil pewter fairy that hangs off my cars rearview mirror.

Thank you all for your compliments Smiley

I wouldn't recomend using a hot glue on clothing normally. If you wash it on warm or put it in the dryer it melts and then sticks back together in terrible ways. But this is only going to be worn a couple times and won't be seeing the the washer/dryer so I made an exception. Smiley

They're leaves. It wasn't really a dress after I altered it, more of a corset/jacket/thing and the leaves cover all of it. Perhaps it's easier to see what it looks like with a different skirt:

Well, you're free to not like it and thanks for the comment.
