This dress was slashed beyond belief! There was no way anyone was going to be able to wear this puppy with the severe slit action. I had some work to do.

First thing I did was pin together all the slashed areas. And yes, there were a lot of slashed areas.

Pinning together the shreds!!

Pinning together the shreds!!

After the pinning, I got to sewing.

Woo skirt!!

Woo skirt!!

The skirt is now one piece!! Took a bit of time, but it’s all together now. But, that’s not all. There’s still some work to be done. Sheer sleeves? Not happening. I got the scissors and snipped away.

Took off those sleeves!!

Likey??

Sleeves-be-gone!

Sleeves-be-gone!

The last step was cutting that skirt that I just sewed together. I wanted a knee lengther, so I trimmed it in half.

Goodbye length!

After the trimming, a little re-hemming was done and my dress was ready for the 60s, with the addition of a vintage brooch and some pumps as well.

It’s been a while since the last season, so I wanted to offer some early cocktails to set the mood.

Chivas, Mr. Draper?

Don took the bait, sipped the Chivas I offered all while blowing him a kiss.
