Makeover time!

At the end of June 07 I made a Cinderella and sent it to CA. I hadn't been making dresses on my own for long but I thought I did a good job.
The actress looks fabulous in the dress and it was worn regularly for 3.5 years.
Last week the bodice came back to me for some updates and I was thrilled to see how well it's held up! After a thorough soak and wash (I swear by Tide Stain Release Tabs and OxyClean) I got to making the top smaller, that was one mistake I did make, replacing the trim, sleeves, and over skirt. With the updates the top looks sparkly new and I'm hoping it lasts another 3.5 years!

I clicked but nothing got bigger! I have old eyes and wanted to see the new details, but I am sure they are fabulous.
