A while ago, a woman who works in my office gave me a bag of clothes to cut up and use for sewing projects. Amongst the standard men's shirts and wool sweaters, there was this vintage dress.
Its THIN, like cheesecloth, but in excellent condition. It isn't yellowed at all, and there are no holes. Putting it in the costume box is out of the question, because its tiny in the waist and ample in the bust. I'm really small, but can't get the eye hooks in the back to close over my waist.
Any ideas on how I could refashion it? What to cut up and save? Ideas on how to use the lace or bust embroidery? My sewing skills are intermediate. Any ideas are most appreciated! Or, any idea on what decade this is from?
