Bear, Delaware, ...
I found this top, or dress, or whatever it was, at a local thrift store and couldn’t pass it up. It looks like the original was handmade, too! (The last picture is the “before”.) Basically, I shortened it, altered the neckline slightly, and added slits to the sleeve hem for ease of movement. This project was from fall 2010.
