Almost everyone I know has an LBD in their wardrobe. Mine had been refashioned once with colour ribbon to give it an edgy look (see here) but I soon realised the black fabric was fading into a blueish gray tinge. It definitely needed a fix to extend its life in my wardrobe. Its salvation came in the form of this lace dress that my friend had given to me as it was too short for her.
Next, I cut out the lace, removed the sleeves and sewed it onto the front and back panels of the old dress.
The gap that was created on the original was filled in using the lining from the lace dress - I created a sash.
The final part was taking the trimming from the original lace dress and sewing it onto my LBD.
