Ok, seriously, does this dress scream 1980's or 1880's. I'm confused.
I took it upon myself to try to liberate the fashion buried beneath this horrific piece of clothing.
I know I'm a school teacher, but I think this is going too far...
Not having a successful "before" picture moment.
You get the idea.
Sally the cat was listening attentively.
Maybe this school-marm dress was working?
I said listen up students!
I've lost my head with this dress. (Get it?)
Out came the shoulder pads first!
Those things are huge! I might make somethin' outta those!
Next, I had to pick off that delicate neck-lace.
I then, picked off those sleeves, and chopped just a wee bit from the bottom.
Sally of course, had to supervise.
I cut off a considerable chunk at the top of the sleeves and reattached them. I did NOT want those poofy ruffles!
I also chopped off the wrists, turned the hem and sewed an elbow length sleeve.
I turned the button up collar to a simple V-neck.
I turned the bottom hem up twice, and sewed it all up!
See you next time!
