Blue 1970's dress refashion

This is another refashion that I did from my 3.50 euro bargain op shop find. I really wanted to make some sweet little dresses for the summer holidays so I shaped the bodice on the dressmaking doll and created this super simple silhouette. It worked a treat when we were in the heat in the south of France. It also worked well in this stormy Berlin summer.... as you can see in these photos.     




I shaped the bodice on my dressmaking doll and attached a gathered skirt section to create the dress.

  2. This is such a great re-fashion! It's amazing to be able to see that kind of potential in charity shop's - think I need to use more imagination when exploring charity shops!

  4. You did a fantastic job re-fashioning that dress! From the before shot, I would never have even bothered buying it, but the after is so lovely and more than worth the 3.50 you paid for it! x
