Lately I’ve been haunting the local Salvation Army, buying things that I think can be altered and made into something more interesting. Last week I found a blue rayon dress that was *very* long (almost to my ankles) and had a very boring round neckline. I loved the fabric and the dress “had good bones,” so for $3.99 it was mine!
I shortened it and used the cut-off fabric to make a new neckline with a collar. Here’s how it turned out:
I think it looks a bit 1940’s-ish. Sorry for the wrinkles – I wore it at work all day. For more pics and details, check out my blog.
