The rain is back, so I spent the day altering a dress I thrifted the other day. It was way too big, and I hated the collar, it was also really short. This is after I had already taken the dress in 4 inches, but the collar, is still intact.
I removed the collar, and added white trim instead, cute! I also added about 2 inches to the bottom, so here it is.
What do you think? I love thrift stores, and vintage clothing. It was such a good find! And speaking of dresses, I got some new sewing patterns. I had one of these already, just haven't had the chance to sit down and use it. Well now is the time, I am taking a few classes, hopefully also a pattern drafting class. I am dying to learn to make my own patterns.
How cute are those patterns! Have any of you sewn anything from them yet?
I also finished the vest for my little nephew, it was tricky getting a good picture of this one. It's so dark and gloomy today. But I couldn't wait to share.
It's hard to see the ribbed detail, but it's there :) I'll try to get some better pictures before I ship it off.
Super cute Sarah, who ordered a pet portraits a while ago sent me the cutest hair pins today. I am a such a sucker for a good flower hair pin, and she makes the most perfect ones. Love!!!
If you would like some for yourself, check out her Etsy shop.
My mom turns 50 next month, so I'm gonna spend the rest of the day looking for the perfect gift. <3
What are you doing this lovely Wednesday?
