I found a treasure trove of vintage dresses for 50% at a local antique store the other day. We're talking dresses from the 40s to the 70s. The materials...ah, I couldn't get enough. I was sad to leave them behind. But I couldn't pass this one up, despite the large size. So I trimmed the sides (from armpit to a little past the waist) and hemmed the bottom. I'm so happy with the results!
