For 15 euro I found this amazing original 70's dress. I bought it but then I started having my doubts. Didn't it look a little too much like a curtain? And when I put it on I looked a lot like a stewardess from those days. So, I decided to bring it to my sewing class and get opinions.
I put it on and Mia, the instructor, immediately saw that I had to take the bottom seam out and make the dress longer. Plus I had to unbutton the top and put the collar up straight. The sleeves were meant to be long but on my long arms you could see they were too short so I made them into 3/4 sleeves. Then Mia found a dark blue ribbon to make the dress a little more up-to-date and make it suit me. And let me tell you....I love the dress now! Now all I need to do is hunt for the right tight/legging to go with it.
