Keepin' it vintage: 60s dress into a different 60s dress
I wonder if people look at some of my refashions and ask themselves, "That's the after?" I may have re-done this dress but I didn't exactly update it decades-wise. What was a too-big, mod, 60's dress is now a...well, more of a late 60's dress, no longer "mod" and it fits better.
It's a big polyester thing with an unusual large collar and strips of fabric across the chest and back. I liked the idea of a big collar, but not that Star Trek looking thing. I made some cuts.
In my blog post, I wrote about possibly killing the sleeves. We'll see. Feel free to check out the full post on my blog Craft, Thrift, or Die.
