I know we are all desensitized by the mass made and mass marketed fashion already available in a wide range of styles, but what ever happened to alterations?
The seamstress I use for Evolution Vintage; YONG is a whiz at helping me make the old new again and bringing new life to old threads.
Case in point. I dresscued a 1980's dress in a shade of Emerald Green because the color is FAB, the neckline reminds me of the Theirry Mugler suits of the 80's and overall the dress can be re-styled current (the premise of EV).
I noticed that it needed some TLC and FAST (due to 2 tears in both the back and front of the skirt)! I was at a fashion crossroads. I could have the dress altered to a smaller size (original size was 10) or I could have the dress cut into a Tunic Top. I thought there is a shortage of Vintage in sizes larger than 6 so I opted for a Dresscue RE-DO. A tunic top it was - saving the little peplum/pleating in the front.
Now it can be styled with jeans, leggings or a skirt!
