Slate Gray & Mint Dream

My sewing machine is in the hospital!  I've had to put on hold quite a few projects, including some that were for my own closet and wanted to get done before I left for vacation.  I had to stick to stuff that didn't need machine sewing.  Enter drab 50's-style dark gray dress.  Cinched waist, full pleated skirt.  I had just a few hours to get it up and running and pack it for my trip.  I salvaged some awesome mint green pearlescent buttons from a vintage raincoat to replace the 3 buttons on the front of the dress that were black.  I also cuffed up the sleeves and added cuff buttons.  You'll be seeing me in this one around town!
