Remember my friend Beth who I closed her back dress vent for? Well she also came to me with a strapless formal bridesmaid’s dress that she wanted me to make modest. Luckily I had done this before at my internship last year when I worked for a custom formalwear shop.
A little background about my friend is that she moved to Utah a couple of years ago, and a friend introduced her to the Mormon church. She knew it was true and joined. Because she became a member, she started dressing more modestly. Recently she came to me for help to make some of her clothing modest.
Here’s the dress before. Make It Modest-Build Up a Strapless DressWith her cute hubby

Make It Modest-Build Up a Strapless DressI shortened the bottom and took off the side ties to use for fabric for the top. To make the top, I draped a scrap piece of fabric over her should and marked so that I could use it for the pattern.
