This dainty little number was one that I scored for a buck. I loved the lace detail down the center, but the body was just a tad big and the skirt a bit long. Did that stop me? Obviously not :) I was determined to make this dress work!!
I'm gonna do a little mending to make everything fit like an Isotoner!
I began by pinning the body about a 1/2 inch in on each side.
Next I tackled the length. I wanted the dress to hit me above the knees so I measured about four inches, took my Fiskars and began to trim, following the hem.
With the body pinned and the length tweaked, I began to stitch everything in place.
I wanted to give a little bit of color to the piece, so I belted it and added a fun necklace.
The belt was a thrifted J Crew find I got for $2, and the necklace was a beaded wonder I got at the flea market for a few bucks as well.
It gave just the bit of flair that I needed! You can't really see the lace that well, so I'm thinking about taking this piece a step further and dyeing it!
What are your thoughts?? Think I should dye? If so, what color do you think would be best? I'm down for suggestions and just might get this re-tweaked this weekend. Keep me posted on your thoughts in the comment space below!!
