My Little Black Dress Makeover

About a month ago, our littlest baby brother got engaged to his wonderful girlfriend. They’ve been dating almost two years so it wasn’t really a shocker, but then they told us they’d like to wed this fall, in the woods…as in THIS FALL…like NOW!

Sally (our sissy-in-law to be) and her mother have everything under control, and have planned a wonderful fall wedding in the matter of weeks.We’ve been helping here and there, but my main concern was what to wear! On this tight student budget, there isn’t really room for to attend a destination wedding and get a new outfit, so I decided to go with a dress I already had and added just a little bling.

My classic black Banana Republic Dress:

Dressing it up a tad with some costume jewelry:

Then I decided not to break up the neckline of the dress, so I cut off the chain of the necklace and stitched it directly onto the dress.

Ta dah…the finished result.

It looks way cleaner and polished right? Plus with it stitched on it feels like a whole new dress, not just a necklace!

Now I just have to pack my hankie and I’m ready to go, wish me luck!

PS. My necklace is from HERE.

    Very creative solution, I have never considered sewing jewelry onto my clothing, but why not because it’s not going to mark the fabric. You can do it all over again next time!
