I loved the pretty edging on it but I did not like it as a top at all.
So this is what I did with it:
I cut off the bottom part of the top
Then I snipped of the strap,
Gave it a quick press
So I could turn it into a bow
Then I pinned and stitched the fabric on the bottom of a new vest top I picked up for a few quid
I stitched the bow on and this is the finished dress:
I think it looks quite smashing on Esmeralda, don't you agree?
She is even wearing a matching necklace. You can find this one and others like it here
A little closer up to have a peek at the bow.
Well I hope you agree with me that it is an improvement and that it has given this rather pretty fabric a new lease of life. Let me know what you think.
