Wednesday Re-Fashion: The Overdone Dress

When we found this dress while thrifting, we fell in love with its details--the animal print-like graphic, the turquoise and black color scheme, and the lacy, sailor-dress collar.  We posted it for sale as it was, but every time we looked at it, there was something missing.  Alas, it became our next re-fashioning project.

The sleeves were long and the skirt came to an awkard length, so we decided to shorten it (for summer!) and take off the sleeves altogether to bring the focus on to the collar and its black edging.  Here's how it turned out:

Now it's the most adorable summery dress!  I love how the edging on the collar creates a bit of a sleeve.  And the fabric design still stands out, even without all that fabric. And isn't J SO GORGEOUS?

This is a one-of-a-kind sundress--ON SALE NOW in our Etsy shop.  You can also browse some other newly-posted redesigns!

There's more work to be done, so I'm off (like a wedding a light, I'm out of cheesy phrases.  Anyone else?)!  Thanks for reading, beautiful babies.

Stay gorgeous,
