I removed the embellished lace trim from the hem of the train, and replaced it along the the hemline.
Along the neckline, I stitched small and medium pearl beads, using the bead placement from the hem as a guide. You can see the neckline below. The veil was borrowed from her cousin.
Here is a view of the back. The floor vent is giving the tulle netting underneath some "help", and the "poof" of the princess seamed dress is emphasized!
I absolutely love the way it turned out, and have to say that to anyone who can sew, you should give serious consideration to re-using your gown or parts of it for special occasion, heirloom pieces like this. Having my daughter re-use my wedding dress in this form, made the day all the more important to her. It wasn't particularly difficult, and extremely rewarding. I can't think of another sewing project that will bring be so much joy... that is, until her wedding day!
