This dress was quite a frumpy frock when I bought it for $1.
However, I loooooved the baskety/laticey print! I’d never seen anything quite like it.
First off, a few things had to be removed.
I was going sleeveless today. Temps were back to a balmy 60 degrees. Le Joy! I couldn’t just leave those arm holes with jagged edges, so I got to pinning.
I also wasn’t digging that neckline as-is, so I pinned it down to make a nice, throat-pleasing pleasing V.
I ran all my raw edges through my machine.
Once all my raw edges were sewn down, I still wasn’t thrilled about the length.
I hemmed the new hem, pressed all my seams, and was ready to head out into the beautiful, sunny day!
Oh yes…and the winner of the Coco Before Chanel DVD Giveaway was (drum roll please!) Sherry! Enjoy! I hope it inspires you as much as it has me! 🙂
