I always love a good "church lady" dress upcycle! Susie sent one my way that turned out pretty darn lovely and oh, so perfect for summer! Check out what she did...
I just happend upon your site and love it! I have been redesigning vintage dresses for my daughter since she was in high school and still do it, even for profit now and then. Unfortunately I do not have step by step photos of how I created the new design but I do have "before and afters". This particular dress was a two piece, what I call a "church lady" dress, that I bought at Goodwill for about $5.99.
I loved the colors and the fabric was a silky polyester which draped beautifully.
How with Susie make this amazing??
As you can see by the finished design...
...it is not a "church lady" dress anymore!
This is such a fabulous remake! I love halter dresses and this one turned out gorgeous! Way to go SP! Looking forward to seeing more of your pieces.
