Thrifty Thursday Retro Fun


I found this dress at the local Bethel Thriftstore. It was singing my name.It had a few issues the major one being you could practically see China when looking into the arm holes...there were no actual sleeves...think batman ;) Totally 80's. I turned the dress inside out and began sewing up the waist, following the seam, about 1/2" in. I kept sewing that way and stopped when I felt the hole left would be comfortable for my arms. This was not a perfect science by any means and I had to pick out some stitches because I over sewed one side and the arm opening was cutting off the circulation to my right bicep ;).

Gosh, I need to get a photographer older than seven. Added the silver belt that was 50 cents.

Chunky teal necklace

Some amazing leather ruffled pumps that I scored for a dollar!
