A Sewing Success Story

I found this dress at Goodwill or etc and figured I’d take it in and it would be perfect, like many of my other cotton rescues. Except that’s what actually happened, this time. 

Look how tidy my house is!

I added an extra pleat on both sides of the skirt and took in the waist section, and then sewed the two pieces back together like magic! 

The print is a little bit pajamas, but honestly, what vintage print isn’t? 

Husband asked this morning if I was wearing a nightie. Dick move. And his surprise was palpable when I told him the lady behind the counter when I nabbed a gift card for a birthday party, loved my dress. The dude is clueless. And paired with some sweet, suede shoes, I’ll mop the floor with him.
