vintage transformed

Vintage clothes are awesome awesome, right? Duh. But sometimes they're not quite right for us, or for the times (or the season, I'm looking at you, double-knit polyester!).

Cute as a button Katie asked me to alter this almost-perfect vintage dress to suit her a little better...

I had never drafted a neckline, or a collar before, so it was exciting...or nerve-wracking, you know, whatevs. I also relaxed the puff of the sleeve a little bit. I think it turned out great, and I can't wait to see how it looks on her!
