Just a quick mid-week catch-up. Its been a busy week, Easter holidays and a day trip to Manchester. But there is always room for a quick customisation. This one took 2 hours and gets the rating of EASY.
Another Oxfam find. £5.99 for a Japanese silk dress. With potential.
Beautiful shoulder drape detail with black glass buttons.
Getting to work with the stitch ripper and off come the arms! I will save these for another project.
Different camera filter. Arms completed, handstitched.
Waisted and Belted
I think I'm turning Japanese :)

Its my birthday next week so I think that this dress deserves a special night out!
I am off to catch-up on The Great British Sewing Bee! Have you been watching it?
Till next time,
