I have been known to be a bit of a shopaholic. Forever 21 used to be one of my favorite stores. When I like something, I REALLY like it. So I often buy clothes that are the same, but in different colors. A few years ago, I purchased two similar dresses in blue/gold and lilac/green. I still really like the blue and gold dress, but I grew to really dislike the lilac and green dress. I still liked the fabric, but the dress itself was stretched out at the top and I found it hard to accessorize. With the blue and gold dress, I'd wear a blue cropped short sleeved cardigan, blue sandals, gold leaf earrings, and a gold leaf necklace. I'm also a clothes hoarder, so even after many Good Will donations, I still had some clothes that I just couldn't let go of, especially now that I sew. So I decided to take the lilac and green dress, and turn it into a dress for my daughter.
I like it much better as a dress for my daughter.
I love the gold in this fabric!
Here's the right side of the dress.
hemming the dress... I realized after I did this that the dress was really thin and decided to add a liner.

I made ties for the wrap dress.
