altered my new vintage find



I've had so much luck with thrifting vintage dresses lately, that
I almost feel guilty. This one was $7 at Vinnies. At first it reminded
me of a velour dressing gown my mum wore through the 1980s,
but I tried it on and the colour and neckline do me many favours. 
I did alter the hemline from a maxi *winces* (sorry Vix) to hit
just under my knee. I will wear her next week to show her off,  
and I'll be belting her her like a good hourglass lady always does.
