From 1980's to 2013 LBD Transformation

Evening all, I hope that this week is being good to you.
Just a quick mid-week catch-up.  Its been a busy week, Easter holidays and a day trip to Manchester.  But there is always room for a quick customisation.  This one took 2 hours and gets the rating of EASY. 

Another Oxfam find.  £5.99 for a Japanese silk dress.  With potential.

 Beautiful shoulder drape detail with black glass buttons.
Getting to work with the stitch ripper and off come the arms!  I will save these for another project.
Different camera filter.  Arms completed, handstitched. 
Waisted and Belted
I think I'm turning Japanese :)

Its my birthday next week so I think that this dress deserves a special night out!
I am off to catch-up on The Great British Sewing Bee!  Have you been watching it?
Till next time,
