Pam submitted this dress which felt super summery to me. It had an incredibly cool floral, polka-dotted print in a mix of red and white - this color combo is one of my faves! I thought it would be just the dress to welcome the weekend!
I found this 80s dress and loved the permanent pleating below the waist. I didn't love how high the neckline was, or the sleeves with shoulder pads.
Anything with permanent pleating wins in my book! Let's see how Pam made this work!
Both of those came off. I took one of the sleeves and made some bias to bind the armhole for a sundress.
For the neckline, I decided to just follow the line of bottom of the existing facing - 5/8" from the edge. Then I just trimmed, folded it over, and top stitched it to finish it off.
This made the neckline less choking on me - yay! I thought of raising the hem, but decided I like the length with the way the neckline came out so I would keep it conservative.
Pam, what a cute, summery dress you've got going!! I loved that you removed those sleeves and tweaked that neckline to make it perfect for you! I think this is a piece you'll get away with wearing all summer long! Thanks so much for sharing!
