AIMIE'S LATIN DRESS
This is Aimie's latin dress which had been purchased from an E-Bay supplier in France although the dress had actually been made in China. The dress was a poor fit, the straps all being much too long and Aimie did not like the sequined decoration, she had expected the dress to be decorated with rhinestones. The bra cups had no substance or shape, did not fit well and were very unflattering to the bikini type top on this dress. Aimie was unable to wear the dress as it was. Understandably having already bought the dress Aimie's family did not want to spend a great deal of money having the dress completely remade so it was decided to make some alterations to hopefully achieve a good fit, with a different look and a dress that Aimie would feel comfortable in and be happy to wear. Aimie's Mum had already purchased some lace pieces and some rhinestones to use on the dress so it was decided to incorporate these into the alterations.
This is the dress before alteration commenced.
All of the sequins were removed from the dress and the straps all adjusted and shortened to fit Aimee. For some reason all the layers of the skirts had been wired with the exception of the bottom layer so this was wired to match the rest of the skirts. Black and White fringing was applied over the bra cups along with some black and white lace pieces that Aimie's mother had already purchased for the dress. After all this had been done the dress looked like this.
The dress was then returned to Aimie for her Mum to stone the dress. The photos below show the total transformation of this dress once the stoning had been completed.
