I picked up this fabulous maxi dress for a fiver at a vintage fair a few months ago. It hung forlorn in the wardrobe unworn because it was too darn insane for everyday wear.



It was too 'fancy dress' but just too good to languish on the rail.

A couple of hours of pinning, cutting and sewing and I was left with this!



Step-by-step details can be found over on ze blog, here: http://mancunianvintage.com/the-thighs-the-limit-how-to-easily-transform-a-1970s-maxi-into-a-vintage-style-mini-dress/
