Upcycled Batwing Dress

Brooklyn, New Yo...
In 2012, I’m planning on upcycling the unloved, forgotten garments in my closet and sewing drawers.
This sparkly top belonged to my grandma, one of the most elegant dressers I know. There are pants that go with the top, which I plan to convert into something new soon. The top was an easy one to alter; as you can see, it was basically a spandex box with sleeves and a turtleneck. It took less than an hour to refashion the shirt into a hip-hugging number with batwings.
