Over a year ago I was contacted by a gal that I went to Jr High and High School with. She needed her wedding gown altered and only had a few days to get it done! Of course I was up for the challenge!
The dress was sleeveless and came with a lace jacket. My job was to alter the jacket and then attach it to the dress so that it would be an open-back dress with wide straps in the front and closed with buttons on the back of the neck.
As you can see in this picture, I have pinned one side of the front to make the dress straps.
I sewed little button loops on the back of the neck opening to go with the glass buttons I attached after cutting the opening for the back.
