this wasn't really a recon...but i embellished this dress and did a few minor touch ups. WE found it at the salvation army.  My 16 year old daughter wanted something different to wear than all the other girls so with a bit of black lace, some safety pins, and some nips here and tucks there...We came to this dress...let me know what you think



was raining so they were running to the car.

Love the color and I'm wild about the corset detail on the skirt.

Thank you all.  My daughter is not the average size, 6'2", so finding her a dress that covers and still looks young is tough.  I also hate to buy new where there are sooooo many items out there just waiting to be reinvented...I love this site..it has truly blessed my creative side.
