Changing Colour is Simple!

Well this post will be about crafting mainly.... 

My work had a staff party on Monday, the theme was Casino Royal... hens boys dressed in suits and girls in pretty dresses. 

I really did not feel like going to getting a new dress, besides what would be the odds to come in to the party and some one else has the same dress. I would have been mortified. So I thought I'd wear a suit.

My unique vintage dress been given a new life!

Would I dye something again? You bet! 

But now I'm having a bleaching project in mind... also this time I will not forget to take picture before!
