You guys…I have a BIG question to pose. Whites after Labor Day – yay or nay?!
This dress has some severe spot action.
All those spots will be tackled, but what are your thoughts on the color?
Do we break the Labor Day rules or do we go with a new shade of color?? Let me know your thoughts below! Happy Labor Day weekend!
My girl Ninutschka in Germany submitted the cutest remake! The pattern is so fun and she totally worked it into something that suits her. It started off a bit frumpy, but check out her upcycling magic…
Some weeks ago I discovered your blog and was so impressed by all your great ideas. I am a vintage-lover too, and often customize my clothes. I found this simple, green printed dress at a flea market. The pattern is quite fun but the fabric is super full, so I wanted to create something else out of it.
The dress was at least two sizes too big and this was especially apparent in the chest area. It is hand-sewn and I knew that I could work with the existing seams to make adjustments.
Check out the after look on Ninutschka (and her FAB shoes)…
Here’s that mauve polyester dress again!!
Long sleeves, extra layer up top…
…got turned into this fabulous dress the first round!
Nothing like some halter action!!
I was still left with the top layer of the dress and I had to find a second use for it!! Wanna see what I did??
