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!
