I have to admit I actually paid full price for this vintage 1980s dress, a whopping $8! But that is a drastic increase from my usual .50cent steals!
The husband and I have been very busy going to dental hygiene continuing education classes lately, which means I have been in need of some new outfits to wear! Our class was on Friday and with Memorial Day on Monday I was short on refashion time. This refash only required 2 things: 1. Removal of the sleeves and 2. Shortened length. Which means I would only need a little bit of time to pull this off! Step 1: Remove sleeves.
Finally rid of those ugly sleeves and mini shoulder pads. Again, I never understood the point of the mini shoulder pad. One of life’s mysteries I suppose..
After I removed the sleeves I folded over the outer material over the lining to finish the armholes.
Sewing my arholes!
Step 2. Shortening the length. I took about 10 inches off the bottom of the dress and folded it over to make a tiny hem.
After our dental hygiene class we stopped by the Blue Water Bridge (Goes across to Canada) for a quick picture! It was pretty wiiiindy!
Enjoyed lunch and a beer at Junction Bouy on the St. Clair River 🙂 Yum! Took this picture just before it started to rain and we had to move tables 😦
