A vintage dress back to life

Here is my mom back in 1975. In this dress she actually met my father!!!

I wear it with all grey:

Thanks for reading!

Hey Sofy,

I really like your post and the dress is just fabulous. I'd like do link to my blog. There's a category named "Thrifty Throwback Thursday" ( which is about old clothes, inherited by your mother, father, grandma or whomever. But you need to have pic of it. Your refashion is just perfect!

Thanks & greetings from Germany,
