Homecoming Dress Fix

So, I've been away for awhile.  I'm not really sure where, seems life just caught me up in it's swift moving currents and now we have washed ashore into October.  I've done a few little creative projects here and there and thought it might be time to check back in and share.

Up first is the Homecoming dress fix.  This cute girl of mine decided last minute, and by last minute I mean the night before, to go to her Homecoming dance.  That was on a Friday, the dance was Saturday.  This is all great and everything BUT she didn't have a dress!

So, in between some already scheduled events on Saturday afternoon we hit a store, bought a $30 dress that was cute but, meh - it was lacking, and we dressed it up a bit.

We wanted to make it better and a little more modest.  Granted, compared to some dresses we looked at, this one was pretty conservative.  Still though, a little more length and a little more coverage on the shoulders was desired.

Here's the before....



It really was pretty cute.  She didn't think she would like it but when she tried it on, she loved it.  It had a Aubrey Hepburn feel to it in some way and Miss M has always had more of a classic style so it fit her own personality really well.  We still needed to make it better though.
