Redesigning a dress
The original dress was very simple, but I wanted to spruce it up to attend a wedding
I purchased about a 1/4 yd. of purple lace and cut out the motif pattern to make an applique
I embellished the applique with tiny pearls, beads and sequins
Then I formed a design following the shape of the wrap top, draped the skirt and formed a rosette at the waist for emphasis. This gave the dress an entirely new look.
