Almost a year ago I started revamping this 1970's
dress I got from a friend who was about to throw it
in the bin.
It's been laying around on my to do pile ever since.
Yesterday I decided to finally finish it!
I do like the fabric and the shape is perfect for my
short frame but the awful turtleneck was too tight
and unflattering since I've got a short neck.
I decided to go for keyhole a'la Lana Turner in the
movie The Postman Always Rings Twice.
The keyhole was a breeze to make but the rest of
the dress needed A LOT of mending.
I had to sew new seams all over and sew by hand
where the sewing machine couldn't go, I also had
to change the zipper.
It was worth it though.
I promise to take a picture of me wearing it pretty
soon because it looks rather dull just hanging there.
HAVE A NICE WEEKEND!
