This dress was my mom's from the 60's. You can't tell from
the pic but it's made of gorgeous velvet! Of course what
makes the whole dress is the groovy embroidered band.
I just love that my mom wore it to some chic event all
those years ago and now I have it to enjoy.
I found this at a thrift store and just had to buy it even
though I had no idea where I would ever wear an orange
crocheted dress. As soon as I saw it I knew it would fit me
perfectly. I'm a really miniature person so it's hard to
find anything vintage that fits so to find this was a true
treasure! (Boo Kitty said that this was his favorite.)
Picked up this dress at a vintage store. It was way, way too
big for me but I just loved the lace top and the cut of it.
My mom tailored it to fit me, re-lining the lace, chopping
the hem and taking it in all over. Thanks mom! (Please
excuse my random shoes in this pic. I just realized
that I forgot to change them to coordinate with the dress.)
This dress isn't truly vintage like the first three. I guess it's
new vintage, if that even makes sense. It's a Bebe dress
from the early 90's. A gal I used to work with gave it to me.
I can't remember where she said she got it but she gave
it to me because I was the only person she knew who
would fit into it.
This dress isn't vintage at all but I think it kinda looks
70's bohemian and I sewed it myself so I thought I'd
throw it in here. I made this dress out of a sarong that
my cousin brought me from the Philippines. I thought
the fabric was gorgeous but the sarong itself was so
big it wrapped around me twice. So I hacked it up
and came up with this design. I've never worn it
because I'm not exactly sure where to wear it but I
think it's pretty cute for my very first attempt at
sewing a piece of clothing.
