There are two things I LOVE About this dress is:
- It’s long sleeves!
- There is a turquise flower… which means I can wear my turquise boots!
This black and orange QUILTED dress is my costume today! I’m going as a 60’s girl 😊
Simone is going as Laura from Little House on The Prairre. She got her outfit from a church sale for $2.
The older lady that checked us out said she had made the dress and hat for a barn dance she attended when she was young.
This embellished burnt-orange button-up shirt literally called my name from across the thrift store rack.
The price tag read $3.09 – which meant I could buy it 😃 dispite it being too big!
This is the first time I’ve altered anything, so I was more worried about doing it successfully than about taking pictures to show how it was done- sorry!! Since I plan on doing this more often, I’ll get better at describing the process!
I kept sewing inch seams under the arm down to the waist – about 4 times- till I got the shirt to a good size.
Then I created an inch seam atop the sleeve although down the sleeve. Finally, I took in the bottom arm seam 2 inches to create a better arm fit!
Of course- I’m more of a dress girl…
This shirt turned my summer dress into a fall outfit 🎃
I LOVE how the shirt turned out 🙂 Well worth the $3 and time it took to sew.
Friday Fashion – Vintage Style
* Vintage Skirt – free (family heirloom)
*Tank tops (Target- I absolutely must wear a tank top in the summer heat and I have yet to come across a vintage one… Probably not really vintage attire)
*Wooden necklaces $.49 (thrift store)
I absolutely love vintage clothes ❤️
I wear vintage clothes almost everyday… And I want to encourage others to think and dress outside of modern fashion!
I admit it feels a little silly to pose for a picture – but I want to start showcasing vintage fashion on the blog 😊
Please bear with me as I learn how to take pictures that best display vintage outfits!
$6.50 Summer Dress
Before I could wear it, though, my husband had to trim a few inches off the bottom for me!
(Short girl problem!!)
This dress has been so fun to wear! I went garage sailing this morning and was complimented so many times on my dress! It was a great conversation starter and a sneaky way to encourage thrift store shopping!
