I bought this huge lace monster a while back. I really liked the alternating panels of lace and chiffon and fully intended on preserving that into a skirt. As far as the bodice I had no set plan for it at all. I just took apart the seams and saw what I had to work with. I ended up using the sleeves as the new front bodice and gathered them up at the shoulders to create a draped effect. I also made a leopard print sash/belt for it using scrap fabric and a couple of snaps. I used the original liner of the dress to line the bodice and skirt of the new one.
Thrifted dress: chiffon and lace
Sash: chiffon and cotton blend, snaps
