Ruby Rox Vintage H-Alteration by Durnesque Ruby Rox Vintage H-Alteration by Durnesque
This is a Ruby Rox halter dress from the early 2000's I altered to give it more of a vintage feel. I hope you enjoy my pun-ny title. :)

The "before" dress is not an actual photo of the dress I altered, but a very similar dress (I forgot to take a before shot). The only differences between the two are that the dress I altered already had some ruching on the the top and it had a flower instead of a waist band.

I altered the top to give it a sweetheart neckline, cut out the tulle, and added the white trim to the hem. Quick and easy. A few little touches brought a whole lot of zing to a simple, outdated dress.

Now you just need a proper crinoline and that'd be one hell of a swing dress <3 I LOVE it.

Yeah it does! BTW- I've not been avoiding your comment about the story you wrote, I'm leaving it in my inbox to remind me to take a look at some point. I've just been so busy! So it might sit there a while, but I definitely plan to check yours out.

Oh you're fine lol. I'll tell you that I certainly did not go the route you did though and stick with the basic storyline or idea behind twilight. I went with a more Anne Rice approach to mine lol. I actually spent about 2 years deeply researching world myths about Vampires for this book XD Bah! Hopefully I didn't waste my time.

Wow. I love this dress. Can I ask how you did the 'riffles' in the front, along with the sweetheart neckline? I really want to make myself a summer dress and that looks beautiful.

Unfortunately, I didn't. As I noted in the comments, the dress I had was already ruched in the front, but I forgot to take a "before" picture- so I found one of a similar cut dress, though without the ruching.

I could however, suggest that you find a similar pattern, but increase the length of the middle panel and gather it.

Thanks girl! I can't claim all of the top though, the top was already ruched, I just gathered it a bit more to make the sweetheart neckline.

I said in the comments it's not actually a picture of the original. I forgot to take one.
