Would you look at this find! It's like it was sitting on the GoodWill rack just waiting for me to find it. Luckily I was there looking for birthday presents for the 4 year old (I found some great ones by the way!)
The dress was quite beautiful but very scandelous. The top was completely backless and very "bib" like. So....I got out my Ginghers and chopped the top off.
Then I grabbed some scraps I had and with yellow thread I sewed on a top to the skirt.
I have to say I am quite pleased with the end result. I did zero gathering, edging, ruffling etc. And it no longer shows off too much skin. Can you believe the detailed ruffles on the bottom! Luckily some other sewer got to spend hours adding that.
I figured since I did not have to do much to it that I could at least add some stitching details. What do you think?
