here are some photos of a ball gown I was commissioned to rework.
It was floor length with a 6ft train so I turned it into a fancy sweet cocktail dress with a new removable short train. I used the extra fabric to make a bolero jacket, and replaced all the tiny sequins that had fallen off throughout the years.
This Piece was a lot of hard work, but I'm proud to say she loved it.
It was also my first time making a bolero with a super high couture collar.
What do you think?
