This mauve wonder got a face lift over the weekend!
Remake coming later today, but any thoughts on what it looks like now?? Fill me in!!
It’s been a work-in-progress kinda week!
I’ve been playing around with tons of Swarovski crystals for a chic project that you’ll get to see in a few days!
Also, this vintage dress…
…and this shoulder padded delight…
…will be posted as well. I’m sitting in a sea of fabric scraps as we speak!!!!!!!
Adrienne’s piece for today is one of my faves! She used one of my go-to methods for when a vintage dress is just a little too bold or the pattern is super overwhelming. You can simplify and make it rock with just one easy step. Check out Adrienne’s piece…
I have been reading your blog for some time now, after I discovered (and bought) the book! I have always been an aspiring DIYer, but didn’t really know how to get started. Your book and blog have given me a lot of inspiration and ideas, so when some friends and I decided to go out thrifting, I dared them to find me something awful so I could make it into something wearable. This dress is the one we all agreed on.
It was a silk faux wrap dress, and was about 5 sizes too large! I actually loved the fact that it was silk, and the pattern, though, a bit VIVID, was too much for me for a whole dress.
You saw this dress last week…
…when I reached out your way to help me pick out what color to dye the top of it!
Those appliqué/pockets were the best!!
And by best, I mean had to go!! The votes were tallied and the winning color was coral!!
See how the whole piece looks now!
