Frugle to beautiful

Some very simple beading turned this boring dress into a beauty.  It has been getting harder and harder to find dresses for my daughter since most kids opt for jeans by this age.  We picked up a plain cotton dress from a consignment shop today.  I usually modify the dresses we find in some small way; shortening straps, taking in the bodice, removing or relocating gaudy bows.  Nothing was really wrong with this one except that it was boring.  What a difference a little sparkle made.  My daughter is much happier and at a total project cost of $5.00 (dress $5, beads on hand at home) I am too!
