I didn't know what was I thinking when I bought and old outdated dress from a thrift store. Maybe its because I liked the fabric or maybe I just wanted a challenge, or maybe a little bit of both.
I liked the challenge. It was like a mind game, a fun puzzle I could wear. I don't usually buy dress that is...well if it is not within my budget.
The dress was way way way too big for me, but the good part was I could downsize it to fit my size. Revamping this dress is just a matter or adding and subtracting. I basically chopped off a little bit from the top and added a lace fabric.
I consider myself as still a novice in sewing.. There are still imperfections sewing wise but I got the style I was aiming for.
