Check out how I transformed that lovely 1950’s lace number from frumpy to fantabulous!
Totally not feeling the ill-fitting, scratchy-lined before of the dress, so…
I carefully removed the itchy lining (it looks deceivingly satiny soft in the photo but felt like a pot-scourer against my skin, yuck!), the broken zipper and an extremely old dry cleaning tag
grabbed another fab vintage dress that fits me well, placed it on top & used it as a guide to pin in the sides of the lace dress
stitched along the pins to take in the width of the dress
sliced off the excess fabric & chopped the length
and my smashing tangerine dress is now fit for flaunting!
