Prom dress from the 1920s

Added Jul 7, 2012

Umeå, Sweden






I bought an ugly 80s dress at a vintage store with an idea in mind. I cut the sleeves off, restored some of the beading which were coming off and added fringe, and just like that it transformed into a twenties dress that i wore for prom. Whoop whoop!
