Restyed Vintage & New Dresses

Here is what i have been working on the past few weeks,



This blue & white vintage batik fabric dress is made in the same syle as Marilyn Monroe's cherry dress in ''The Mistfits" very 50s wrap front fitted waist and my favorite part the low back





This Orange bird print dress is made from new cotton fabric and its not really a vintage style but i loved the style and wanted to try it out, it has boning support and bra cups, smocked elastic back and 2 layers if ruffles.

This wiggle dress made from Egyptian print cotton with red pipping, fitted through the body with a ruffle hem, a low back with lacing, bra cups. This one sold the day i listed it :-)


This is a restyle of a vintage 80s/90s sundress. it was midcalf length, so i shortened it added the bust ruffle with pink lace and the bow, it has a smocked back. Now its very cute and now not so dated.



This is a vintage 90s mini dress it had some ugly shoulder/cap sleeves that i removed, love the hip pockets. i added the lace trim and tulle skirt. Now its a fun party dress :-)
