Description

I love thrifted clothes! I found this big gown and loved the pleated skirt, so I took it apart, made some adjustments and put them together again. The bodice is a simple V-neck that i drafted, and the waist is nipped in by the convenient elastic band :o)

The last b&w pic is what it looked like before.

    Your refashioned dress is lovely and you have made such a great job of making it fit you. You are very clever; well done.
