I just loved the minty green shade of this one buckaroo dress. It was pretty to begin with but just wasn’t working as it was so I came up with a few ideas to try to make this fun and summery.
I’m always happy when I add sequins to anything, so that’s the route I’m taking today!
I grabbed my sequins, some matching thread, and decided to use the diamond-ish shape panel in the center of the dress as the template. I used greenish shaded sequins for the outside and two sizes of iridescent shaded sequins for the center. Once I began, I couldn’t stop! OK, no…I could stop because it was taking a little bit of time!
I was proud of my stitchery!
I also decided to change the neckline just a little bit. There was about an inch of material between the newly sequined panel and where the V neck ended, so I opened up this area with a seam ripper…
…and stitched down the newly opened area. Before it was ready to wear, I made my final adjustment…I cut it short! Now it’s ready for the day. I paired it with a my vintage boots to give it a more casual daytime feel.
I loved how the sequins glistened in the sun!
And to make it evening ready, I added my favorite sweater from my first year of blogging!! This has become one of my fave cover ups and I love the little bit of edge it gives this super feminine dress.
