Both of our dresses started off as not much more than gigantic pieces of beautiful fabric. But we had an eye and an idea for something better.
My dress was wedged between a faded terry cloth jumpsuit and a floral jersey nightmare. I knew it was way too big and the heavy fabric on the bottom half (while gorgeous in detail) was going to be way too long for my petite frame. But I couldn't take my eyes off of it, and soon tossed it on and began to make pinning and cutting plans inside the tiny dressing room, with my buddy in tow.
It's pretty cool when you have a friend who not only has the same vintage obsession as you, but knows how to sew and bring those fashion fantasies to life!
Noa's dress needed a little less alteration but we both lit up when she tried it on because the colors were just so gorgeous on her! The bust area was pretty cool, yet modest, as-is - so we decided to make hers a sexy little mini.
Noa has rocked hers out with boots and a tiny blazer, while I'm still waiting for that perfect opportunity to wear this elaborate dream dress. (But either way, I still smile every time I see it in my closet!)
