My sister wanted a cool party dress to wear to a gala we went to last night, so I shortened a floor length red ballgown that she wore to her senior prom 4 years ago. I added a bit of black tulle around the hem and tailored it a bit more so that it fit her better as she’s now a bit smaller than she was in high school. Also decided to use the wrap that came with the dress as a fun sash about the waist. It was so easy! Made it yesterday afternoon and still got to the gala on time!

Old Prom Dress
Black Tulle from the underskirt

    Nice idea but small advice. You need to iron it so it would look more profesionally done. Hope you will not missunderstend me. Everything else is good!
