To Be Refashioned…

Before1Is this the most flattering dress ever or what? I mean, the shoulder pads, the billowy sleeves, the hem length, what’s not to like? 😀

I bought this dress two weeks ago from the sales rack of a local vintage shop because, despite its 80s awfulness, it’s made from a very nice fabric, a drapey red viscose with tiny black polka dots.

Before2There are a few dark spots on the skirt portion (which is why the dress was so cheap I guess), but I think I can either cut around them or cover them up with black ribbon or something.

Stay tuned for the result (hope I didn’t jinx it by showing you the before and not having even begun to cut yet)!
