New York, New Yo...






this is a refashioning of two thrifted pieces: a yellow sundress and a technicolor romper. i sliced them apart at the waist and reattached them with new trim for a waistband. super easy and now i have 3 pieces i love rather than 2 unworn dresses! (the fourth amputee is on probation, but hey, i’m still ahead.)

    This is so beautiful! I am having a bit of a love affair with yellow skirts at the moment, so this is totally up my street! And the swirlier the better… Love your blog btw! :)

    Lovely dress. A good example of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts….I think I got that right ?! You have a talented photographer also, lovely pics, lovely dress, lovely pics……
