In progress Trashion Xmass party dress

This thrifted 60´s dress has been hanging in my closet for two years. The neckties I´ve had for about a year. My office´s Christmass party is on Friday and i had nothing to wear. I never go out and buy something in this sort of situation, but I do think creatively in a panic. :) Inspired by the stylish tv-series Mad Men, I decided to restyle this old dress with a detachable necktie extravaganza (attached with safetypins). This will look great with some fishnets, high heels, satin gloves and screaming red lipstick. It is still far from finished, but I´m sure to get it done by Friday.

To see how the neckties for the shoulder piece is constructed, go to my Tie Feathers tutorial.
