I reconed a dress that was last years favorite but due to the lack of zipper/buttons no longer fit my daughter in the torso. I sliced it down the back and used the original ties to construct loops the thread ribbon through corset style. It took about twenty minutes and Bellee was so excited she hardly stopped jumping on the couch for me to take pictures.  Cheesy  I'm hoping it maybe a top when it does eventually get too short.

Sorry for the bad pictures but she is pretty bouncy right now. I'll have to try again later, and here a picture of the original state of the dress.

Comments are always welcome!
Thanks for looking!
