A coworker of mine gave me this dress that had been languishing in her closet for years.
As you can clearly see, the top of this dress is a bit big on me. Also, the plaid was a tad dull for my tastes. I took in the top and added a couple of pockets made of fabric from this refashion. I think the end result is quite lovely.
You can’t see them in the above pic, but I wore my favorite vintage brogues with my new frock.
My coworker liked this transformation, too!
You know, I just remembered the last time that I wore that plaid dress. It was Saturday, August 1, 1998 (almost 13 years ago, I guess that makes it kind of vintage). It’s the dress that I wore on the morning of my wedding day, just before I put on my wedding dress at the church. (-: Good memories. I’m glad you chose to keep and “Jillianize” the dress. You look really cute in it! ~Email from my Awesome Coworker
I loved the back story of this dress, and am happy to be giving it a new life that will hopefully be just as romantic! :)
