Thrifted and Altered
I thrifted this dress last year sometime, even though it smelled of Grandma I felt it had potential. So I washed it and wore it, but couldn't shake the feeling something was slightly off about it. The length, I realised - it was an awkward midi length that wasn't exactly ugly but not quite flattering. This is what it used to look like:;
So I hemmed it in my own clumsy way - and by clumsy I mean I made it slightly asymmetric totally by accident. But I love the dress even more now that I've properly made it mine.
I should also add that I bought this cardigan from my mum when I was a teenager and then promptly stole it back from her. Probably convinced myself I was doing her a favour, too...
