I picked this little number up for .50 cents! I am still undecided if it was a black dress or a navy dress. In certain light it looks black and in others is looks navy. I held something black next to it and it looked navy, so I don’t know!
I switched out the seashell type buttons for some red ones.
I chopped off 8 inches off the bottom.
I’m not sure what the purpose of this is? Weird.
Hemmed the bottom.
I took the scrap from the bottom and turned it into a sash!
I took some more scraps and made 2 long strips of fabric.
I pinned the strips od fabric to the inside hem of each sleeve. This was going to make a strap for the sleeves.
Seewed a button to secure the strap.
This strap attaches to the shoulder.
Wore my new dress to Fred Howard beach! It was a beautifully sunny day, 87 degrees!
This guy was a professional beach goer for sure!
Sitting in the sun made us very hungry, so we ran on down to the Wing House!
