Dress Week Sunday + Sale

Dress Week: Last Day (7)
- Ahoy Polyester




I have a strict no polyester rule for my wardrobe. But for some reason I just could not resist this dress. I bought it at one of the estate sales I went to last weekend. It was badly stained and in need of some minor repairs. I had intended it for the shop but now I'm not so sure. I'm really considering deconstructing it to make a pattern so I can make this dress in cotton (and with sleeves). I've never altered a piece of vintage before. Not even to hem it...although for some pieces I probably should. I just love the 40s style of this 70s piece. I dunno. Maybe I should just let it go to someone who will love it as is. What do you think?

Dress: maybe headed to my shop
Sweater: Pegasus Vintage
Star Pin: JeanJeanVintage via the Purple Deer Blog
Shoes: Steve Madden

Please Enter the GIVEAWAY for a $30 Credit toward my shop and stop by the 30% Off SALE.
Both close Monday at Midnight
