I think that is a fabulous idea with the cocktail dress and especially the tree skirt!! This thought just occurred to me: will you keep your dress white after it is altered to be a cocktail dress, or would you look into dyeing it a different color? Can that even be done? That would be pretty sweet.

I love this idea. My dress is very plain, so I don’t know that I would personally do it, but if I had a more elaborate dress, I totally would! You’ll use it forever!

I want to do this too! But I am also going to try to dye my dress since I’m not sure I will want to wear a white cocktail dress anywhere. I don’t have a beaded bottom, so I will just toss the extra fabric. I like the tree skirt idea!

My mom is ADAMENT against me doing this to the point she get violently mad. I ask her when has she EVER worn her dress again (or had us try it on) and she said “Well, never, but it is a memory I refuse to have destroyed!” :-/

I will have so many pictures from that day and I LOVE the top of my dress. I know I would rewear it as a cocktail dress.

I too, love this idea.  Starting to consider it more – please share any progress or pictures you have of the project!
