So I forgot to take pictures of the "before", but since you all are craftsters, I'm sure your imaginations can get the gist of it and I can just show you the "after" (which is the best part anyways, right?)



Basically the top was a puffed long sleeve disaster. Who adds huge puffed sleeves to compete with an already awesome accordian collar?! It reminded me of something out of Big Love, complete with a high waisted ankle length skirt. I found the set at a garage sale for two dollars and fell in love with the interesting collar...so I  altered and combined the two pieces to make a dress! It's kind of 1950s June Cleaver, no?



So the construction bizzare, but I'm really pleased with how it looks. I may add some darts to the back but overall, I think I'm ready to wear this baby out to a tea party, or some other gathering of good people.

Comments and critiques welcome!

Oh yes, that is a fascinating collar and I can imagine the dress beforehand, it looks much better now.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

This is absolutely stunning! You did a fantastic job, that dress looks designer-quailty. I love how the accordion neckline meets in the back. Jeez, I am going to start looking for some tops like that at thrift shops to give a new life!

What an amazing collar. Great find. I can't imagine it with puffed sleeves (yuck) good job!
