1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Reconned blue dress on: December 05, 2007 06:19:03 AM
This is my first post, so hello everyone!  Smiley

I'm going to a Christmas party in a couple of weeks, and we have to wear something nice and "special" there.. I don't have any nice clothes, but then I remembered a dress I bought before summer. It looked horrible on me, and I had only worn it once, so I decided to reconstruct it.

Here is the before:

And here's the after:

(Please excuse the wrinkly-ness!)

I cut of the top part from just under the sleeves, then used the "belt" for straps. I also took it in a little bit. For some reason my machine won't work with any other strings but white ones so I had to use them, but I don't mind.
Any comments and criticism are very welcome! This was my first "big" project so hints and tips are appreciated too Smiley
