Hello and happy Chinese New Year!!
I found this cute red dress which said it was my size, but it wasn't. I bought it anyway (that's what's sooooo good about refashioning!)
Slightly too everything...
I popped it in a tub of dye - Rosewood Red from Dylon to give it a less tartan-y and deeper and richer feel. I know, it's still pretty damn tartan-y...
Way too long
I then popped it on a dress form and brought it in, there was a side zip thank goodness - and raised the hemline.
It was just a little spruce, but it made all the world of difference. It will now get loads of wear instead of being looked over because it's wasn't quite right.
You can see the full details here..
Thanks for reading!
