What to do with my dress?

Recommended Posts

I need some ideas. I have been searching for a white cocktail dress to wear for my legal day, but have found nothing. I went to the bridal shop I got my actual wedding dress from and found some nice BM dresses that come in white but they were all around $200 and I really wanted to stay under a $100. I have been thinking about having light in the box custom make a dress I like on the website for me in white but I am worried I won't like the way it fits me when I get it and I don't really want to waste a hundred bucks.

 

Anyway today while I was at the bridal shop I was just browsing and found this dress on clearance. So I bought it thinking I can alter it to what I want or just sell it if I find something else.

 

So I need some ideas of how I can make the dress into something I can wear again, I am definitely making it knee length and I am wearing blue shoes so I thought I could do a blue sash or something, but I don't want it too look to bridal.

 

 

Any and all ideas will be appreciated thanks soo much for your help!!

 

Here's me in the dress:

Maybe see if a seamstress can take out the current sash to move the skirt up a bit and then you can add you blue sash to it? And maybe you could add some crinolin under the skirt for a little body to skirt. Just a couple ideas :)

Oh I like those belts and I never thought of moving the skirt up I thought I had to live with it low like that (and I'm not sure how that would look with the short length)

 

Now I just don't know how to do something with the top I feel like it needs something so its not so plain

What if you just make it a sweetheart neckline and wear a nice pendant necklace? If you're wearing a necklace at your beach wedding perhaps you could wear the same one on your legal day to tie the 2 together.
