Putting on the glitz
The choir that I'm in gave a concert last night and the dress code was black and glitzy. As I was on the back row I needed something that would show up on my top half. Originally I was going to wear black trousers and a top, but when I tried it on I realised the glittery part was at the bottom and wouldn't be seen.
Rather than go out and buy something especially, I adapted this black dress that I already had
I had a bit of black sheer fabric (I think it's organdy) with silver spots on that I made some gathered sleeves with, and added a brooch with a couple of layers of the spotty fabric behind.
I only tacked the sleeves in so that I can easily take them off again - in fact I already have because we're singing at another event this week and the dress code for that is black and red!
