Or, The Shortest Post You'll Ever See on This Blog.
Can't say I love the neckline (which used to be the sleeve puffs!) but it was quick and hid a multitude of sins the original seamstress committed on the top of the front bodice. And I wore it to a holiday party with some of my fave Austin sewists tonight! Good times. I also see from this photo that the lace hem is lower on the left. So I'll keep you posted after this dress undergoes its next revision.
Thanks for your comments on the last 2 posts. I plan to catch up this weekend with my responses. xo

And I'm so glad you found a way to keep the top ruffle.
Two thumbs up for your refashion! You really reworked that style to the max. It looks so much fresher and lighter. And fun! I love this kind of projects, very Project runway! :)ReplyDelete

I gasped at first, thinking the top photo was a new creation... You did a great job on the refashion, it looks modern and flirty now!ReplyDelete
I've been out of the loop too! great refashion on this dress! and so quick... I'm inspired to tackle a thrifted wedding gown I've been staring at for months...ReplyDelete
Certainly a huge improvement! Of course, I tend to think taking the 80's-ness out of anything is a vast improvement. ;)ReplyDelete
