My little black dress

Another from second hand. It was oversized so I had to shortened it a little, narrowed and make darts:) I bought an oversized dress especially, cause I wanted to make a dress without a zipper: just to jump in it. Upcycling this dress took a while cause it has to be tailored enough, and loose enough to jump in it freely:) The result is satisfactory!!:)

    Classy and sassy! With the belt and without, this is great. I’d love to see before shots, too. It’s always nice to see how someone re-imagined an existing piece :)

    The photos w/o the belt give a much better idea of your alteration skills. They are great. Cordially, Nehmah

    I love all of your stuff. It amazes me how great people are it so inspiring for me when I feel like giving up on trying to make something truly great. Practice practice I suppose. BTW My hubby is 100% Polish and he enjoyed your stuff to (wink) sorry hes a dork but hey its the first time hes actually looked at someones profile so a good compliment. :)

    Adorable! Nice job on the tailoring—I have such a hard time making things hug curves without using a zipper.
