I bought this lovely table runner in an special discount for 1 euro. Then I decided to transform the great fabrics into this dress.
I mixed 2 kinds of patterns: for the bustier, dress # 106 burda magazine nov 2006, the yokes were from Pollini dress and for the skirt, I just joined several straps one to another. I added the lining and a tuttu skirt for making the dress even puffier.
I am very happy with the results. I am planning to wear it in a wedding next week. I think no one could figure it out how much my dress does really cost: )
