The Dress

Ive had this dress in my closet for 3 years now. My cousin picked it out with me in a vintage shop in NYC, who at the time, was working on the set of Gossip Girls. Fun Times! Anyway i have been debating/scared to do anything with  it. So finally on Sunday I sat down at my sewing machine and went to work, and what d'ya know? it actually came out really cute!


Me hard at work...

First I cut the neckline, (it was not very flattering the way it was)


Then I cut the sleeves using just a t-shirt for
a guide.

I added a little lace at the top and VOILA!
