Charlotte Hall, ...
It’s been a while since I’ve done a complete reconstruction, but I did the one above a couple of weeks ago.
When I saw the purple bow print material of the original dress, I immediately thought of my youngest sister. She loves purple. Plus, what teenage girl doesn’t love a colorful bow print? So, I reconstructed the dress into a little summer frock. The reconstructed dress is pictured on my adorable baby sis’.
I chronicled the reconstruction process with photos, in detail, in this post.
