The dress was given to me by the wife of my sister’s boss, who knew it might come in handy for me on a rainy afternoon. After removing the appliques from the bodice, I decided to turn it into a one-shoulder, empire waist dress with a capelet. Thankfully, I had plenty of material due to the detachable train, which I used for the pleated skirt and caplet. I reused the buttons and loops from the sleeves as closures for the back of the dress and used the appliques to embellish the dress and capelet, using the fallen pearls I had collected along the way as a closure for it. The iron came in handy for getting all the stitching marks left after removing the applique and in making the pleats.
