i bought a vintage laura ashley dress one day
found it on flea market and payed 0,5 euros for it
believed or not
it even was my size
and had adorable back botton closure
but when i got it home and tried it on
it was all wrong
it had droped waist (that never look nice on my body)
and those dreadful 80’s puffy sleewes
but print was adorable, and lace collar and skirt with darts and buttons in back
so.. i cut it in half
shortened bodice a lot
then altered it to fit me the way i want
removed sleeves, and then redesigned them and put them back on
made some extra darts on skirt and stitched it back on
a brand new vintage goodie :)
