little black dress :D

Norwich, United ...






this is a dress which i got from a charity shop and then altered by adding a waistband, shortening it, cutting off the tassels and making it a bit smaller. i also altered the lining so a bit of it shows (the red band on the hem). the second pic shows it before i altered it. this dress was for a ‘murder mystery party’ that i went to last week :D

Material Notes

black silk dress from charity shop, red synthetic taffeta, red lining fabric

    Your version of the dress looks far better than the original. Great idea.

    Nicely altered dress! That waistband fits well to the dress since it’s the same colour as the lining. Btw, I went to a murder mystery party last week, too :D
