Added Jul 7, 2013
This is a refashion project, I made it from an old one shoulder black top. I cut the top under the bust and added a self drafted A-line red skirt. To cover the seam I added a seperated band which I handstiched to the dress secure it. I also cut the one shoulder and created two tunnels for the red straps to pass through. It was a very simple and fast project, it took only one hour to make (all these straps are not sewn, they are just cut and stretched to curl). For some mysterious reason I get many copliments when I wear it!
