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.
I couldn’t resist posting this handsome picture of my three boys as part of my Vintage Fashion Series!
They are actually dressed as magicians but they look like little vintage gangsters!
Eli looks like a vintage Newsboy 📰
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.
