I forgot to get any before pictures of this adapted dress. It was a fairly plain beige dress that I sewed lace, ribbon roses and a little cameo button onto.
The sides of the lace bustle are pulled up by ribbons which can be undone.
The skirt lace is from an old rageddy skirt, the lace on the bodice was from an old dress. I sewed on all the decorations.
Sorry but for some reason Blogger refuses to show these the right way up, even if I rotate them.
Neckline of dress:
Bow at waist. It was actually given to me by a cute little girl who liked my hair on the way to my first Cobweb club.
Necklace was a long ago gift from my boyfriend, the green jacket is my elf coat from Euphoric Garments
Purple hair on the purple carriage. I love how I match the carriage better and better as time goes on. For those who do not live in the Sydney/ Newcastle area, the purple carriage is special because it was randomly decorated in purple, unlike the rest of the train which is still the old, faded green. Even the toilets have purple metal walls!
With my lovely friend Fiona
