Brooklyn, New Yo...
When I bought this dress at the thrift store, it was a t-shirt dress, in this amazing black silk, but was several sizes too big for me and down to my ankles. I turned it into a tank dress, shortened it, and made a tie for the waist. I think I made the straps a bit too wide, so they have a tendency to slip a bit, which is annoying. Ultimately, I don’t love the dress. My hem (especially along the bottom of the dress) isn’t smooth. But it’s really light, and great for warm weather.
One of the most beloved American designers passed last night. We look back at a few of his designs.
