Reworked - Part I


dress - forgot the brand, YSL shoes, F21 clutch, vintage snake belt

A dress I reworked last summer for a wedding. It was originally a size 6! Wasn't love at first sight, but I knew it had potential. For $50 and 5 hours of labor, it wasn't bad for something I'm only going to wear once, maybe twice. Stay tuned for part II. (size 14!)

  3. That was an excellent alteration!! I'm expecting a dress in the mail and was worried that it might be a problem if I have to take it in, but this is a perfect illustration of what could be done with a little sewing magic.

    You look absolutely classy with your hair all did and your make-up. :)

  11. What an amazing job! The "after" looks like a one of a kind piece... I think I like it better than the original (even if it had fit right)!

  12. I agree with Liane...I love the "after" better than if the original had fit correct!

    Great job!

  13. THAT is a size 6??? It's a big BAG on you!

    You really did rework that baby, though. How in the world did you do that? You have some major skills, honey.

    GREAT color and the pop of green against it is absolutely stand out.

    I love it.

    I also love that you're doing uniform sizes on your photos now. Yeay!
