This dress was one of dresses from my mother.  I really loved it but I have such a hard time wearing anything that I can’t wear a bra with.  I realize that there are strapless bras … but those suck.  So it’s time for a refashion!

See the beadwork on the neck portion?  I have GOT to save it!

Very simple redo today.  Cut off the top, and take that beadwork out …

Sew up the bottom with some elastic band.  Make sure to stretch the band and the skirt a bit so that it goes nicely together.

And here is the final product.  I used the beadwork as a necklace and the skirt came out fabulous paired with an Nanxson(TM) Women’s Soft Pu Faux Leather Obi Waist Band Belt PDW0009 black and a simple tank.  And you gotta love Lex’s pose!!
