Day 126: Plastic Letters Dress

I was super-excited when I received this dress in the mail from Stacy!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ Inside, the tag reads, “Made to wear anywhere!”, but I don’t quite believe it.

Made to wear anywhere?

Stacy included a note that read:

This is a dress I got from my favorite thrift store, the ARG.ย  Each year, at Halloween time they put out racks and racks of vintage clothing and call it โ€œcostumesโ€.ย  This one caught my eye cos of the pocket and button detailing at the throat.

I, too, am a sucker for fun details.ย  She and I think alike!ย  Time to get to work!

First I cut off part of the sleeves (sorry…forgot to snap a pic).

Then, I pinned down each side about 2 1/2″.ย  I pinned the sleeves snugly at the top, and gradually belled at the ends.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Then, I sewed up each side.

Dress Lipo!

I cut off the excess fabric, and then trimmed some length from the bottom of the dress.

Chop!

I finished off my dress by hemming the bottom raw edge, as well as those sleeves.
