A few weeks ago I've got a cry for help from my dear neighbour Britta from Britta.tanzt.Balett.
She had a big big problem. She was invited for a historical dance in Berlin and her seamstress had let her with a half-finished dress. So she asked if I could help to rescue the dress and her dance-invitation. I told her that I'm not a professional seamstress but I'd like to do my very best. So we went to work.
Because the dress was too tight for the frost skirt, the seamstress had unpicked the dress on the back and had not yet found a solution for that the frost skirt to be visible. Fortunately, Britta had already bought a veilto hide the frost skirt. But it was way too long for dancing. So we had to cut it.
Next step was to look the dress more pompous. Therefore we gathered up one of the three layers of tulle. After that we fixed a few cute little black roses all over the skirt. And ta-da we're finished, I thought...
So the next day we invaded a fabrics store to find some nice lace we could use for our purposes. In fact, we found the right one and here's Britta, happy, in her finished dress at the ball.
