Vestito bellisimo

This is another converted dress from an old italian house coat that I bought on Siena market for 2.50 euro. I should take photos of the before dress but get so excited to convert them that I never remember until I am already stuck in! Will do so next time. This dress was huge on me, it buttoned down the front and had big frumpy sleeves. I cut away a lot of fabric, added some elastic and some darts, took up the length, added some ties to the back and this is the result. I love it!

Material Notes

Strong cotton…I love that it is faded too.

    Great colours and great shape!:) I’ve been wondering to do sth like it, but from men’s t-shirt… The problem is I could never find long enough one:(
