Some of you may recognize this dress from my Reloved shop-- it was up for sale for several weeks. I (re)discovered it in my closet one day while I was getting dressed and decided it was just too pretty to part with. I originally bought it for myself as a little "after baby" gift and the thought of sending it off was a little too bittersweet. Here's where my seam-ripper and sewing machine come into play...
I removed the sleeves, hemmed the arm holes, and took in the body. I'm SO glad I did because it's a dress I love to wear now!!
B.a.i.t. Footwear; Belt: Target (stolen from Hope); Headband: trim left over from this project; Ring: Oh My Deer!
This is a good reminder (for me) that sometimes the best pieces are already in your closet-- you just have to give them a little stitch here and there. ;)
