Remember my quirky before & after refashionista costume?
I finally got around to refashioning the “before” side making it a wearable addition to my vintage collection:
Here’s what I did:
First, I fortuitously scored a bag of vintage lace at the charity shop for a mere €0.50, whoohoo!
Then I simply followed my original tutorial and repeated what I had done to create the “after” side of the dress. Once I had finished removing the sleeve and shortening the skirt I bound the armholes with some of that thrifted vintage lace, removed and replaced that silly plastic diamond embellishment under the bust line with a bit more lace and hand stitched on a couple more plastic spiders for a bit of whimsical fanciness!
It looks awesome with my button embellished cardi – I love it when refashions are magically made for each other!
