May 15, 2009Vintage Dress Obsession – Found Housedress
Check out this great dress! I thought it was a piece of fabric in a mixed bag that I bought from a garage sale recently for $2. But it turned out to be a lot more than just fabric. In addition to some actual vintage fabric pieces, there were about 8 vintage quilt blocks and this dress. It is a little big, but that is another job for craft group, right?
I especially love the fabric on this dress, and the cute white piping. I think if I shorten this dress and take it in, it would make a really great swimsuit cover-up, since it zips down the front.
Since we are going on vacation somewhere with beaches, I decided I needed to spruce up my wardrobe with some remade vintage dresses. Now I just need to find a vintage or retro bathing suit. I saw one with an adorable skirt the other day. I just need to find it for a little cheaper!
One of my only vintage dresses that actually has a label!
So cute! Love the pockets.
