By cutting open the seam and inserting stretchy black lace, the fit has been adjusted to size and the dress is brought up to date with an unusual twist for evening wear.

The fringing is layered from the bottom up so that it hangs below the hem to create swing.  Worn with a stretchy sequin headband and an ostrich feather that could be made from supplies in our shop, this dress is transformed into a classy garment at a fraction of the cost of a retail version.  Don’t throw out your old garments, come and visit us to see our huge range of trims, ribbons and buttons and give a new lease of life to your old favourites.
