Rescued By Bowerbird - more frocks!

This is from the Rescued by Bowerbird range. It's one I worked on quite some time ago now. An old wedding dress I found when fossicking down the south coast. The beading caught my eye because it was just so beautiful! I reworked it from a rather unflattering 80's wedding disaster to a cute knee length strapless cocktail frock with a real 60's feel

This gorgeous frock has a matching bolero and is a beautiful rust colour. The lining which is visible at the split is a burnt orange - the contrasting colours make it stunning and the cut is really falttering. it would be the perfect cocktail gown!

Another frock from the Rescued... label. Although I didn't do much to to this little baby except take it in, as it was a very large size and had no real shape unfortunatley. I also took the hem up from below the knee to just above the knee. The frill and the silk flower at the side make the outfit though!
