Since the end of October, I've had the opportunity to do alot of alterations and redesigns for a local formal wear store.This has been my favorite one so far. I'm trying to figure out how to get my photos to look the way I want them to in this new computer, and I still haven't mastered it. I know...you're sayin', "duh". But I'm just not that savvy with all this stuff and my time is absolutely not my own to just sit and figure it out because I want too. So here is my best attempt.
This semi formal was once a long dress with an intricate line of beads and sequins around the bottom edge of the top layer of 7, yes 7 layers of netting and fabric. Did that make sense? WE wanted to keep that beautiful line of beads. I didn't want to resew all of them! It was interesting to decide how to keep them.
The beautiful girl was wearing this for her 16th birthday party. It was shortened to just below knee length.
I took out the zipper and made a corset back. She wore pink satin "ballet slippers" and a tiara.
She was gorgeous and so very excited.
Her parents allow her and her 3 sisters to have one big birthday party...their 16th. They rented a hall and invited about 100 friends and family.
The decorations sounded fabulous.
What a fun fun project.
Annie and Jasmine, if you read this, thank you for the opportunity to have a tiny part in making your memory.
Thank you so much for leaving comments in the post below letting me know that it is apparently just my screen that is not allowing me to see everything on my blog.
It is snowy and slick and cold here. I'm about ready to poke my head out from my cozy surroundings and slide off to work.
Have a wonderful day y'all. And I'll be back.
