This classically styled black dress has beautiful lines but was quite a bit too long and was originally strapless. In order to give this dress a more modest appearance, simple straps were added from the cut off length. Small strap guides were added on the underside of the black satin straps to keep bra straps where they belong!
The lavender dress originally had only spaghetti straps. It looks wonderful with this attatched shawl in a matching shimmery organdy. It was also shortened a bit and a strip of this satin banded the shawl by the neckline. It really complimented the dresses style and changed it up abit giving the dress a "new life" enabling it to be worn again.
