Upcycled Dresses

The Goodwill gods smiled upon me this week.  I love vintage, but I love even more to embellish and update a vintage garment and give it a new life.  Here's what I've been working on.

Tiny dots dress with ribbon brooch and belt
Ruched cap sleeve chiffon "bird" dress
 The sleeves were chopped off to create a more modern silhouette.  I ruched them to make them a bit more interesting.

A handmade cotton dress with very pretty embroidery.  It needed a little boost, so I added a bright blue tie to the waist and pink rick rack to the bust and pockets.

I have so much more to show you!  Alas, today has been hectic, but soon you'll see more upcycled clothing and accessories - slip dresses, tea stained goodness, obi belts, sashes, clutches, even a little jacket!  Oh, and a few OOAK birdcage veils made from all vintage materials (so yummy...)
