This dress. Thrifted.
It might be my favourite along with all my other favourites.
I hinted at this amazing find back in the spring but the pictures on the dress form just did not do it justice. I'm glad I was able to sneak in a wear before the cold weather sticks around for good. I had to do some minor alterations to it and while I was working on it, I couldn't stop admiring how well it was made. Which makes sense because although it was thrifted for under $10 (I don't remember exactly but it was on a 50% off day), if you look at comparison prices of the same label, you better be expecting some good workmanship. I'm still not 100% happy with the alterations because that giant slit makes fitting really tricky but another rework can wait another year. Because I need a new eye wear prescription after pulling out tiny seams from the crepe back satin the first time...
I also gave myself a mini heart attack when I was working on the dress. I was about the press open the new seams and while I was waiting for the iron the heat up, I was also sweeping the floor like the super multi-tasker... Then my butt hit the ironing board and the iron tipped over and hot water spilled all over the bottom of the dress. And the crepe material immediately shrank in that area and puckered the dress. Colourful words were uttered. My butt could just have ruined one of my very best thrift finds ever.
Thankfully the material relaxed again as it dried and all is well.
But it was too close of a call, ironing and sweeping will be kept as separate activities from now on.
