This afternoon I finished off this funny refashion. I have to post the 'BEFORE' picture because it is way too daggy:
It's a great 1980s mummy dress, it would have been very light for summer as it's really great cotton. But that style (and size) was just dying for a refashion, and like I mentioned in a previous post I really wanted to keep the weird embroidered birds. They make me laugh so much!
So I gave it a slight 1960s bodice and kept the skirt as is.
What do you reckon? I made it a size 10 (for the Wardrobe Refashion's fashion parade) so it's a little big in the bodice for me... but after it comes back after the fash parade, I think I can alter it to fit. Husbie just loves it... so might be hard to give away!
