Mauveless


Look at this lovely number that I scored for $2!

A bit Stiff don'tcha think?

Yes, yes I know! Not much to this one huh? Except there is so much just not working out! It’s big, it’s frumpy, it’s sad, it’s boring….blah, blah, blah! But come on. You know me by now right?

So what inspired me to get this one was the lace at the top. I am loving vintage style clothing and lace. The color is nice too.

First I got rid of those sleeves leaving raw edges which I promptly hemmed. That still wasn’t enough though. It was way to big and way to long. So I took it in and cut the length. I threw in a hem and I was done. Yup yup done. I took the left over from the bottom of the skirt and used it as a sash. Check it out:

 

Much better!
Much better!
Feeling quite fetching in my new frock.

I love refashioning clothes! Have you refashioned anything lately? If so please share! I would love to see your creations. Goodnight.
