My 1 Euro party dress

Added Jul 8, 2008

Enschede, Nether...






I bought this lovely table runner in an special discount for 1 euro. Then I decided to transform the great fabrics into this dress.
I mixed 2 kinds of patterns: for the bustier, dress # 106 burda magazine nov 2006, the yokes were from Pollini dress and for the skirt, I just joined several straps one to another. I added the lining and a tuttu skirt for making the dress even puffier.
I am very happy with the results. I am planning to wear it in a wedding next week. I think no one could figure it out how much my dress does really cost: )

    It’s a gorgeous dress! You will be very bright in it on the wedding. And I like your earrings and shoes everything looks very harmonic! The bustier looks so sexy! You really look beautiful. And again remind me Eva on the red carpet!

    This dress looks great on you! I would never guess it was table runners. Very creative use of fabrics and patterns!

    Ahhh, you look gorgeous, as always! The dress is beautiful, such a grat idea! And I never would imagine it was made out of table runner. I recognized the bustier pattern, and I can say I like your dress much more than the Burda’s original.
