A Retro Refashion and Party

This is one of my mom's dresses she wore in the 70's.  I decided to make it over and wear it to a retro themed party.  It wasn't a huge change, but it was enough for what I wanted.

I eliminated the drop waist and shortened the sleeves and the length.  I also "de-puffed" the sleeves.

Here's a few pics from our fun retro evening.

Check out my blog, Second Chances by Susan, for more pics of the evening, and a brief explanation of "de-puffing" sleeves.  (Is that really a phrase?!)

Very cute and retro night looks fun too. That scalloped neckline was very pretty, I'm glad you could save it.
