1930's dress - upcycle project


In my family, a dress has been passed down. It belonged to my great grandmother, and its a beautiful, made to measure, floor length lace gown, with a sash and waistcoat.... Well it was!
I took it out to wear for an occasion, and it had two MASSIVE moth holes!! So I couldn't wear it for the occasion (but I did find a great replacement, but thats a story for another blog post).
I didn't want to lose the dress completely, so I chopped off the bottom. Using the belt from the dress, I made some binding for the lower edge. I thought it might be okay as a crop top, but the fabric hung too heavy, so I attached some fringing. I did it all by hand, to protect the fabric, so it took aaaages, but I'm really happy with the result, and cant wait to style this up!
