Okay, I’m about to share a before and after of a vintage dress I restyled. Remember, before pictures are supposed to be frumpy and apparently I spilled water on myself for an added frump factor.
I found this dress a couple months ago and an estate sale. The lady had a bunch of vintage clothes my size, a lot of them were works in progress as she was also big into sewing. I loved the colors and pattern mixing of this dress and overall it was the right size, but the sleeves were ill-fitting and I felt the length was unflattering for the style.
I ripped off the sleeves and sewed the edges to make it a tank dress, which makes it a perfect for summer since it’s also cotton. I also hemmed it up a few inches. I can’t take credit for the tie belt, that came with it but I forgot to put it on for the before picture.
vintage dress: estate sale
necklace: Modcloth- last spring
vintage shoes: thrifted
These were pretty simple changes but made it a more wearable dress for my style!This entry was posted in outfits and tagged outfits, restyle, t-store scores, vintage. ← right now… the cat’s meow… →
