Mary looks like an overgrown toddler in this strangely-collard frock!
It took a good bit of convincing to coerce this Clemson fan into donning Gamecock Garnet, but she proved herself to be a true friend! ;)
To make this refashion happen, I ripped off that collar and restitched the original neckline back into place. Then, I lopped off a bit from the bottom as well as the sleeves. The bottom scrap became a sash, and the dress got a nifty vintage brooch!
Now that dress is all grown up!
After the show, Mary and Heather ended up switching frocks to align with their alma maters, which was totally fine. :)
Mary rocked this frock on the runway! How lucky am I to have such amazing friends in my life who are willing to put aside the time to help me with a big, scary fashion show? :)
