I love this dress, I made it out of an old 1980s wool dress that looked like something destined for a funeral. and made it something more towards the fashion of Kelly Osbourne or Kim Kardashian.

I wore it to see Wicked with my boyfriend and he was very pleasantly surprised when he put his hand on my back and found the slit there.







Before shot of dress, long sleeves, long skirt- nothing sexy about it.

Thanks! I love this dress. It has such amazing vintage details and is such good quality material that it's hard to not love it.

Also thanks for the <3 on my blog- I'm super excited over having gotten past my 100th post!!!

The dress was made of wool so it had a lining in it. I removed the zipper and then sewed the lining back to the dress. It was really simple.
