This is my entry into the challenge




This dress I really liked the style of, BUT it was so Nana looking and frumpy.


I ripped out the centre panel, which was black with little flowers on it.....I mean you'd think they would have used a different color to start with.
Then I sewed in eyelets and re threaded the lace, I took out the zipper from the back which in hindsight I should have left in    oh well.
a sort of close up of the eyelets


 Then I took one of my old fave tee's, which had really bad stains under the arms, but I loved the monkey's on the front, funny that I hate monkeys but these ones are cool, I can make them bounce when I walk..... Grin


I cut up another old shirt that was huge and remade them both into a little dress to either wear on it's own out as the under garment for my  lace up dress.



I just love the fact that I actually look like I have boobs with this outfit.
I can't wait till summer to wear it.
although miss.17 has forbidden me from wear the white dress outside the house without my black lace up over the top.......silly girl like I'll listen....

Tell me what you think, don't be shy I have very broad shoulders..... Grin

Excellent job on both garments! And there's no reason you have to cover that white dress up. Wear both with pride.

Great job.  The black dress went from frumpy to sexy and the white dress really sets it off nicely.

Clearly I need to find a "frumpy" dress on my next thrifting trip to do this.  Way too cute not to!
