REDO #5 40'S WRAP DRESS

 MONDAY, DECEMBER 27, 2010 




THRIFTED WRAP DRESS, FIXING NARROW WAIST, FIXING PLUNGING NECKLINE


Since this was the holiday weekend I worked on the the dress earlier in the week so not to conflict with my baking/cooking/celebrating/eating......haha.


 My plans were to close the wrap, be modest in the neck area and still increase waist size. I also needed to shorten length as it was too long. THIS TIME I got a lot of process pics!

I loved the high buttoned collar.

REPURPOSING,REWORKING, REDOING CLOTHES! TUNIC TO DRESS

MONDAY, DECEMBER 6, 2010 

REPURPOSING, REWORKING, REDOING CLOTHES! 

REDO #1 TUNIC TO DRESS


So, I've finally been inspired to do something for myself on a regular basis.
 Its low budget, takes a "little" bit of time and some creativity. 
Thanks to Marisa Lynch of NEW DRESS A DAY 
(who I've been following for quite some time), I've gotten the nudge I need to get to work!
Check out her journey, she rocks! 
 I'll be attempting to REDO clothes that don't work for ME in their original state 
and make something that will.
