I needed a dress for a gala event and good friend gave me this one.
It was one of those dresses she'd worn for several fancy events and then... it ended up in a closet in her mother's house. She was done with it and gave me "carte blanche" to work with it. As a starting point, it has a good brand name (BCBG), this lovely scallop detail,
and the brown/gold colour scheme really works for me.
But it was too big and a simple "sew up the sides" wasn't going to work. At the same time, Artist Daughter lent me a little black number, which in the end became the style inspiration for this re-do.
So, with a little Nip.
and a Tuck.
