Like the Refashioned Polka-Dots Top, I found this dress at the local second hand store. It was ridiculously cheap and I liked its shape, but it still just sat in my closet because something was missing.
At a certain point, after I purchased my overlock sewing machine, I got to experimenting with all sort of threads. I cut these two embroidered pieces out of an old shirt my mom wanted to get rid of, and gave them a silver thread finish. I then attached them to the front of the dress for a look that reminds me a cute apron, Alice In Wonderland-style.
I looked for a way to add another silver touch somewhere on the dress, to make it more complete, and than decided to use some of my silvery knick-knacks for that purpose.
