Vintage Leslie Fay dress refashion (PSST! What I really wore for the 4th of July!)

After we moved, I have come to realize how much vintage clothing I actually have. Unfortunately I couldn’t wear some of it, because it needed to be altered or refashioned! So I decided to start with this vintage Leslie Fay dress:

I got it at Savers last fall, and never wore it because of the neckline, or should I say the lack of it ๐Ÿ™‚ So, that collar was the first thing to go:

Then I cut a good chunk off the bottom, lets be honest, I still got some killer leg to show ๐Ÿ˜‰

I hemmed the raw edges using some vintage navy colored trim that I had, making this dress perfect for the 4th of July!

    A nice dress! I wish you lived closer, I’ve got a couple “refashions” for the girls I could use help with! ๐Ÿ™‚ *sigh*

  5. So so cute! I love the new neckline and trim to the neck and bottom hem! Love it! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Very cute!

  7. Very nice looking ‘after’ dress! The before collar was almost weird. I have visions of being choked by it!

    • My thoughts exactly! I don’t know what took me so long to refashion it though ๐Ÿ™‚ I am glad I finally did!
