some of my weekend...





i have new dresses started but not finished yet..but i also attacked my sewing pile of hems/alterations/muu muu's that needed some sprucing up. The first dress, I loved the print, but it was quite the crazy grandma morning gown silhouette..soooo I created a seam at the waist to give it some shape, lowered the neck line into a scoop neck and the back into a low v neck. The next dress is one of my favorites (bought in Paris) It was rather long, and after wearing it in college numerous times without being hemmed, it is now hemmed, the straps fit properly and it has a new bow at the bust line..just like new! I love altering these old dresses..seeing the hand sewn seams and details and day dreaming of the woman that made it, where she picked out her fabric, and of course where she wore the finished piece...
