Green Poppy Dress

Don't be Drastic! Add Some Elastic!
A Teal Brunch Dress

I find so many 70’s housecoats when I go thrifting!  I really liked this one with it’s lovely green flowers!

Yikes!  That turtleneck!

There was also a good bit of damage on the sleeves.

I can only assume the previous owner of this frock was mauled by an animal of some sort...

I’ve been working on a really exciting holiday project (It’s gonna blow your mind dear friend) that I can’t wait to share with you guys.  It involves a LOT of really tedious sewing, so I felt like taking a lil no-sew break today!  🙂

Chops happened!

 

Bye damaged sleeves!

I turned this dress so the back was the new front.  I unzipped it a bit so that turtleneck became a funky collar.  That very bottom scrap turned into a sash for my waist.

Not too shabs, I must say!

 

Are you green with envy over how easy this rehash was?

My new dress enjoyed a laid-back day that consisted mainly of hanging out with friends and a tasty dinner.  🙂

 

Yay!  Layers!

Hi (again), Erin!
