This just might be my greatest accomplishment so far. I picked up this dress at a thrift store last week for $2.00. I didn't have much of a vision for it at the time but I was pretty sure I could do SOMETHING.
Basically, it was too big and too...old. I had to completely rework this dress. I removed the sleeves, hemmed the bottom, took in the sides and waist, and created a whole new neckline. The outcome?
I honestly surprised myself. I love, love, love this dress. The bad news: I already ripped it. That's why my right hand is strategically placed on my waist in this picture. It's not the kind of rip that is repairable either. I guess that's what happens when you're wearing 30-year-old cotton clothing. Oh well. I still feel great about what I did with it and look forward to my next project.
