This beautiful original vintage dress has been altered to accommodate a growing baby-bump. The unwanted matching jacket has been utilised to create a mans cravat and pocket square - plus an adjustable collar-style bow-tie for the couple's canine companion.


Size 8 dress (left) altered to fit size 16, and matching netting was used to create a hand-beaded jacket. Add to that the matching shoulder bag with chain and fascinator to reinvent this simple dress as an intricate and beautiful outfit.
