Fancy Potato Sack of a Dress = Lacy Cocktail Frock

For Brittany’s going away party I went super cheese and decided to match its theme of black, lavender, and…wait for it…unicorns.

Got this dress for around $8 at the local thrift store, but it made me look like a potato sack. A fancy, mourning potato sack.

First I removed the copper colored lining.

Detached the accordion bottom.

Shortened the dress.

Added a new liner using lavender material from this refashion and reshaped the sleeves.

Reattached the accordion and wham bam thank you ma’am, it’s done.

I helped prep for the party and in return Brittany Made Me Pretty one last time! Kind of.
