Prom Dress Refashion

I love to dress up like a princess.  It's fun and whimsical and I don't think you ever get too old to play dress up.  Sometimes, however, our clothes get a little too snug for dress up.  Or, in this case, it cost $10 and it was okay that the dress was a little small because it was just going to be a one time wear.
It's not a terrible dress.  I had to wear the scarf across my middle to cover up two large gashes where the fabric was starting to separate from the boning:
So for this refashion I decided to remove the bodice and turn the skirt into a poofy party skirt.with an elastic waist.  After cutting off the bodice there was so much seam ripping to get through. The waistband, zipper and lining all had to come out.  
It was all worth it, in the end.

I even turned the trim on the bodice into a sweet little headband.
I love it! Now I just need a fancy party to wear it to....
