I got this dress at a thrift store for $20 and wore it to my school’s homecoming. I decided after summer break started that I wanted to make it a new dress. I wanted to ruche the sides but then had to alter my original idea because the zipper was on the side and went pretty far down along the skirt. So I ruched it to be an asymmetrical skirt. The top had straps that I cut off to make the dress strapless. I can’t wait to wear this to a dance! It twirls so nicely :D
