With shortness being all the rage these days, I find it hard to find dresses that fit for the fantasy, folklore look that I adore. This was a $13 dress that I picked up at a local Ross and then stitched some tulle onto the bottom to give it length. The lace ribbon was something I had on hand and just added it for fun. The tulle cost me $8 (for 8 yards, which I used a little less than that). I am by no means a talented seamstress--my stitches look chaotic, but are thankfully on the underside of the lining (therefore not visible!). However, I find these kind of quick upcycling projects to add more to the wardrobe for my shoots.
Update: To see images from the shoot, check out my latest blog posting: ballad-of-the-mud-girl.html
