Restoring a late thirties rayon dress

Cost: 5.00$ due to rotted seams and holes
Time Spent fixing it: About 2 hours
This little dress was in a sad state. I bought it at my favorite local treasure trove which doesn't even have a name! Terry the owner didn't want to deal with restoring it so she sold it to me for the fabric. I love the little draped panels in the front and the way the two little points fold down at the neckline. Now if I could only find someone with a 25 inch waist to fit into this!



  1. Wonderful! You really brought this beauty back to life!

  2. such an 'optimistic' dress. too bad about the waist!!

  3. well done! You are always so skillful.
