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!
