A couple months before my husband's grandmother passed away, she was clearing her closet of clothes that she no longer wore, and passed a few pieces on to me.
I loved the color and pattern of this dress, but the cut was totally 90's school teacher (or 00's grandmother).
I cut the middle out of the ankle-length dress to shorten it to knee length. The extra fabric from the middle I used to add a little extra fullness to the skirt.
|It looks super cute with a white cardigan too.|
The jacket from the dress got chopped up and added to some fabric that I was gifted and turned into a sun dress for my daughter. I made it a little loose, so it should fit her again next summer as well.
|She loves her Royals dress!|
