Vintage Dress Revival

This vintage, handmade dress came home with me from a clothes swap last year. It fit perfectly, but clearly, it did not flatter.

Vintage Dress Revival - Before

I performed an emergency collar reduction surgery. Then I amputated the sleeves and bottom hem. And now this handmade dress is ready to get a little love again.

Vintage Dress Revival - After

Much cuter now. The original collar was a bit much. :)

I love how a belt can make an outfit so much better! Great refashion -- definitely more wearable.
