My best friend in the whole wide world got married a couple weekends ago in Chicago. It happened to be a beautiful weekend for a wedding considering it was March. She let the wedding party pick out their dresses as long as they were black. Shannon had this adorable dress that she was willing to let me borrow:
I loved it and was ready to fly to Chicago for the wedding. Problem was, I'm a lot shorter than Shannon. More than I realized! This dress ended up hitting me at the ankles instead of being tea length. So, Shannon said I could cut it up. I jumped at the opportunity (after a little convincing that it was okay if I did) and made this out of it at 11:00 the night before I needed to catch my flight:
I made the skirt the length I wanted, but knew I wanted to leave a little of the tulle out of the bottom to add a little to the dress. I loved the final product and had a blast at the wedding! Here I am with the beautiful bride!
