This summer I have been working as a seamstress for a bridal store, which is fun, wonderful, stressful and frustrating at the same time. One of the most rewarding things I get to do is take a strapless dress and make it modest. It’s creatively stimulating and a lot of work but I love it! Here are a few before and after pictures from this summer. Enjoy!
Organza pleated bodice with ruffled mermaid skirt. Modest fill has matching pleats and tulip sleeves
Keyhole back sheath dress with 3/4 length sleeves and gorgeous lace!!
lace cap sleeve dress with button up back. I lined the sheer top for modesty
Champagne and ivory lace dress. Modesty fill has a built up neckline and follows the v-neck of the original dress.
This is a quick DIY dress made from a top I had, some 2 in knit elastic and a skirt I made out of some of my stash fabric.
Cost? About $2 for the elastic. That’s it!
Best part? I get compliments every time I wear this! Chartreuse and Navy= new fave color combo!
I saw this adorable shirt on a ramble through Anthropology and decided it needed to be remade into a Little Black Dress. the best part? My machine was down so I made this on a ten dollar cheapo machine.
