83 Days to Go: Stacy R

I've been playing with some color mixing/painting/dyeing and when I saw Stacy's piece, it fit right in with all my work-in-progresses :)  You'll soon see them here, promise!

Hi Marisa,

I have been a huge fan of your blog for a while now and I have been inspired to do a few of my own remakes (with the help of my best friend Jen who makes fashion accessories, purses, etc. - and who taught me to sew last year).  This piece was adventurous…

New Dress a Day - DIY - Vintage Dress - Stacy Before - 84

Wonder what she’ll do?  I’m loving the sleeves :)

We ended up dyeing it, taking it up a bit, and shortening the sleeves!!

New Dress a Day - DIY - Vintage Dress - Stacy After - 84

Voila!  Thanks for the inspiration!

The new color of the dress is awesome - I love the muted flowers now and it has a tie dyed feel!  I must say that I would have totally kept the sleeves, but that's just me and my vintage/ruffle-trimmed tastes :)  (I have a top that I made from a dress with the same sleeves about 10 years ago that I'm obsessed with - will wear soon to show!)  This really is perfect for summer with those cute capped sleeves too.  Way to rock it Stacy!!
