{DIY}: Dress Reconstruction

So last year I bought a vintage dress (probably circa 1980's?) and I loved the print, but not the billowy sleeves or the long length. So now, a year later I stopped in to Joann fabrics yesterday and bought some lace trim.

 I cut the billowy sleeves off as well as the lower part of the hemline. I am attempting now to add the trim on the hemline and on the newly cut 3/4 sleeves. 

Here's a pic of the work in progress:

By the way, my sewing machine is ANCIENT. I love her. Her name is Maxine. She's been good to me over the years.

This is a pic of a finished sleeve. Now for the other! 

More pictures to come after it's done! 

Have a good weekend!
