Revival Files


It's always so amazing to me what taking in the sleeves of an old lady dress can do. I chopped off the sleeves,  then took about 4 inches of width off of them, shortened the hem and dunzo. I love the chevron pleating in the front, that was the first thing that caught my eye about this, and as long as I see one good thing about a dress that I like, I'm always willing to put a little bit of elbow grease in to give something old a new life! This little pleated number is in the shop for all of you that need a go to summer time dress!
