Description

I bought this dress from The Urban Jungle in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Its tag says it’s made by JJ Dean of California. As you can see from the before pic, I removed the sleeves, I also took in the bodice a bit.

There are more photos and deets on my blog: http://sownbrooklyn.com/2012/02/28/sew-weekly-post-is-up/

    What a great transformation!!! You look great in your new dress and you have done a great job turning a awful old dress into a very smart dress. Well done.

      Thank you! It is quite the transformation for something as simple as removing the sleeves.
