This vintage frock started life as a gigantic long sleeved maxi dress that I bought at the WAC. It sat languishing in my wardrobe, as it felt like too much frock. The other issue was the fact it's a size 20, which means it was several sizes too big. I decided to chop both the sleeves & the skirt, & I took it in at the torso as well. Now I like it so much more. I made a little scarf from the skirt offcuts too. Oh how I'm loving tweaking things on the sewing machine...my new obsession. I've got to admit I'm no fan of indoor photos, I am so much more comfortable hiding behind my sunglasses!
