The Vintage Evening Gown Refashion Tutorial

I spied this vintage evening gown in the charity shop window and was ecstatic when they sold it to me for only €1!

This gorgeously coloured piece of historic glam was gathered and draped at every seam, fit awkwardly and had a gross rubbery lining in the sleeves however it also had a fabulous sequin sash detail that I completely adored.

It took awhile to figure out exactly what I wanted to do and I was a bit nervous about working with that delicate sheer fabric to make the new sleeves but it all came together beautifully:

Here's how I did it...

Interesting take on the original piece! The sleeves, I imagine, feel like a vast improvement, but they look it too. Love that waist gather :)
