Another recycled dress from second-hand. I think that I’ll never understand the designers who think that real women is a stick or a rectangle… Thus all clothes are just hanging on me. This was not an exception. Now it looks like it should on a real women with curves….
Unfortunately I didn’t take a before photo

    I think you have good taste and a fine sense of proportion – often lacking in designers’ styles…

      Oh thank you very much for so nice words:) I’m used to redo all my clothes, because they’re simply hanging on me, although they shouldn’t

    Amen to that! We have curves and therefore we sew! I left the stick days back in 1996. I like this redo. Looks like it cost a whole lot, too.

      There are many of us who have real curves:) And we should be proud of it-but how when all desingers seem to sew only for the “sticks”-we should sew for ourselves:)
      And, actually I bought this dress in second hand for 15 PLN, which is about 5 $ only:) SO it was a real bargain!
