SEWING FOR MOM: VINTAGE FIND ALTERED

HI DARLINGS! Boy oh, boy did you guys blow up my social media with comments and love for my mom, lol. It made her year. This has been a lot of fun for both of us; I get a break from taking pics, and she gets to steal the limelight, lol. This dress is a vintage find that didn’t fit well, but it was too good to pass up. This is a DVF knit dress with a back zipper. When I bought it, I knew the elastic at the waistline was out of shape and had lost some elasticity, so I opened up about an inch or so, removed it and replaced it with a new piece. The sides were also a little big and instead of just pulling the elastic to gather up the ease I took the sides in a bit.

She loves this dress, she wore it to church so when she got home, I had her photograph in it, lol. She said all the ladies at the church were asking her about it.

 

STYLED IT: ALDO WEDGES (SHE LOVED WEDGES BECAUSE THEY ARE EASIER TO WALK IN) | SMALL ORANGE EARRINGS | LEAF BRACELETS
