That’s right. I’m running out of title ideas for these. C’mon! After 700 or so posts, I think that’s fair, right? 🙂 I promise to be more creative with the next one!
I was really excited about this $1 score.
Teal is my absolute FAVORITE color! I also really liked those fabulous big brass buttons on the front! Unfortunately, this frock was too big for me as-is, and I would have to do some pretty dramatic reshaping.
I’ve got this. 🙂
The sides had to be taken in a good bit, but I also had to be thoughtful about what shape I wanted my new dress to take. I opted for a 60’s-ish mod styling instead of the more streamlined/fitted look I had also been contemplating.
I pinned my dress on my form, like I do. 🙂
Each side got stitched down…
Then, each side got serged!
Almost done! I just needed to raise that hem and take those sleeves up a lil bit!
Look at my new dress now!
I LOVE how the shape of this turned out…fitted, flared, and fun! 🙂 It was exactly what I needed for a brunch outing at The Kraken with pals!
Erin thought it was pretty cute too!
