Natalie Gardiner(long time friend) was given a dress she feels it just not her. She is wanting some ideas of something fun to do with it and sent me a picture in hope that more people would give her feed back.
Her first thought was to make it into a skirt. I love the skirt idea. Detach it at the waist and then add a two inch piece of fabric from the top and run it around the waist. She would need to add buttons or a zipper for closure. I would in addition add some character to it.
My thought is to get a very large white rick-rack or a thick white ribbon with maybe some red poke-a-dots on it and run it along the bottom about three inches above the hem. Then I would accent the skirt with a matching belt and shoes.
That is just my idea. If you want to weigh in, make a comment below. If you want to post a picture of your idea to give her inspiration just email it to me at NatalieWestwood@me.com
