Dress Remodel of the Day

I once had started with a vision to make a cute, and unique new style that was different from any other dress out there.  It was supposed to have a 50's flare with a modern and innovative style...  Well.... needless to say, It didn't work out so well, as you can see in this sad sad photo.  Yes, I went out on a limb and made a wedding dress from scratch, for no reason other than to design something new, but since I was so annoyed by the outcome of this monstrosity, it sat in a bag in a closet for literally 3 years.  Finally I dug this puppy out and gave it A LOT of careful consideration for several weeks.   I knew it had to be made over, but how?  After long deliberation over what I would do with this, I decided it was time to perform my long due re-vamp.  

This is the back of this horrible dress..... 

SOOO then I got to thinking about the changes I wanted to make.  I sketched it out.  As we know, some visions do not always end up exactly the way it was sketched.  But this time I think I might have gotten it closer.  Its often said that success comes from many failures. 

I took apart the bodice from the skirt, disassembled the skirt completely, and took in the waist.  I then totally recreated the skirt making it fit, skimming over the hips, to form a mermaid shaped silhouette.  I then added a thick lace trim around the hips to blend the lace bodice into the taffeta satin skirt.  I hand stitched the lace into place.  The neck, the sleeves, and bottom hem are all scalloped with hand stitched lace applique

.Here is the back view of the made-over gown.  

And that is the story of one of my many dress makeovers, complete with pictures.

This dress is actually available for purchase or custom order.  The nice thing about getting your dress custom made or ordering directly from an independent designer, is that if there is something you see that you would like to have differently - anything is possible!  : )
