Vintage Dress Transformation: 70s to Futuristic

Vintage Redressed

First of all, Happy New Year! Can’t wait to start on some new projects (and some old… let me explain). I believe second chances, especially when it comes to well-made clothing. I have been working on restoring my Grandmother’s wedding gown for quite some time. I had to take a break when things got too busy,...
