70s Strapless Dress

As you can see below, I've been working on converting this groovy 70's skirt into a strapless dress.  It is now finished and will be up at Bombshell Rehab soon!

After putting in the elastic waist, I went on a hunt to find a belt.  Not finding one, I salvaged the fabric from a beautiful navy silk blouse to make the sash belt.  It has a paisley iridescent pattern that matches the iridescent polka dots in the dress. The 3"-wide belt has some interfacing in it so that it retains its structure while the ends are free flowing so that you can tie it any way you like.
