This cocktail dress was a refashion of a boring old bridesmaid dress I found in a thrift shop. I absolutely covered it with multiple shades of pink and red lace, bias tape and vintage trims. It took a total of about 6 hours to attach all the trims and I used my favorite machine stitch all over to focus on thread as part of the design.
