Originally I had this under “Dresses,” but then I thought DIY was a more appropriate place. My goal, with the help of my wonderful mother, is to update a used dress from Goodwill or a consignment shop, and I was wondering if anyone else has done this before. Would love to see pictures 🙂

Yes! Dress is now aquired (bought from an auction website so very risky!) but it’s very pretty.
i’ll attach photos, but i’ll be fixing the clasps, reducing volume, shortening the train and (hopefully!) turning into more of a fitted shape.
All goes well i might consider adding sleeves etc.
I usually only make casual stuff and costumes so a bit nervous!
