I found this awesome dress at a local oppy (thrift shop) last week.
Love the fabric and could tell by the label it’s a genuine 60s number. But the shape did not work!
So I took it in by making pleats in front of the mirror, pinning, sewing and re-trying on.
Then I changed the neck line slightly by stitching down a little flap.
Removed the sleeves and faced them
and used the left over fabric to make a bow brooch which I can wear under the bust or in my hair.
I wore it out on Saturday night and got quite a few comments.
$7 well spent.
