    It’s tucked away in its garment bag in a closet. Sometimes I put it on for fun. But it’s just sitting in a closet 😉

    I think repurposing it to a two piece would be a very practical and versatile way of getting bang for your buck as you can pair it with other pieces in your closet. If not, shortening it to a dress would work too! (:

    snugglebutt :  Thanks for sharing this idea, bee. I think it is so romantic, and what I will do with mine. Or if I ever get an invite to a gala, I could rewear it, haha! My dress is blue, and pretty ornate. I want to wear it more than the once!

    I intend to use the material to make a baptism gown for my children.  And to also have some as a fancy shawl/scarf opr even a pillow.
