Week 35: Joy

Hello nightgown!!  This 70s number (and a few more...) came from my gal Joy in St. Louis... Week 35: J

"I don't think I've seen you work with nightgowns before so this box should give you some finds to have some fun with.  This wasn't a piece that I wore, however I had my share of these in the 1970s.  Maybe a bathing suit cover-up or a camisole?  Go to work angel."

I loved that this piece was thick enough that I could get away with making it a dress.  There are some sheerer ones that I'll be playing with soon, that will NOT be dress worthy, so I figured I'd take advantage now!

Began with cutting the length!


Once the length was trimmed, I unbuttoned the top of the piece, pinned the edges underneath and added a white camisole.  The dangling strings were tied into a pretty bow and my dress was complete for a little meet up with the girls. Got to hang with KS and AR over some dinner...

Week 35: Joy - After

...and browsed through some boutiques for inspiration.

Sunset time...

Saw a fab, fab, fab Betsey Johnson dress that is giving me some Copycatting ideas :)  Happy Friday!
