Latest work-in-progress.
It’s not finished yet, but this is pretty close to how it’ll look. Maybe imagine short sleeves, some buttons down the front and a little pleated collar on it.
I forgot to take a “before” pic. But when I found this dress at the Jet Rag $1 sale, it was about 3 sizes bigger, 10 inches longer, had long sleeves, a shirt-collar, and shirt-style buttons down the bodice front.
There’s a point in every “alterations” project where you’re no longer performing alterations — you’re making a new dress. I crossed that line long ago, but I think it’ll be worth it.
