Nothing goes to waste in my vintage stock which is why you'll find a selection of upcycled, customised and reworked clothing amongst my shop listings.
Here was a beautifully made pink fit and flare dress that had unfortunately had an argument with a hot iron at some point damaging the collar and skirt. Another fabulous sixties frock had also suffered (with what appeared to be red wine). Its floral colours complimented the pink so I used that to cover the collars and make a tie belt. The skirt has been cut down and refashioned to make a playsuit.
The original zipper fastens the back. The front buttons are show only. There are two side front pockets completing this cute vintage upcycle, perfect for long summer days ahead.
