This transformation was a lot of fun. This dress had amazing potential. I immediately loved the navy fabric with gray floral print. Shortening the sleeves and hemming the bottom really took a lot of weight out of the original dress and gave it a much more flattering fit. I love the result!

I like the re-do for a younger person - not so sure it could fit a 50 plus person or someone who is a bit larger than your model (haha)... But I would most certainly design this dress in something less extreme, but appropriate - shortening the dress just to the knee would help a lot for updating it. And perhaps adding a wider belt? I have a dress exactly like this from my mom's wardrobe...ReplyDelete
Thanks for posting. I have an two piece gold and blue dress with similar sleeves and pleated skirt. I hope to alter it but probably will hem at the top of skirt because pleats are difficult to hem.ReplyDelete
Great job! :-) I also do some before&after.ReplyDelete
hi! I love this! do you show tutorials on how to get the end result of the dress?ReplyDelete
