Retro Fabulous Dress Refashion

At Second Chances by Susan, Susan picked up this classic 80’s dress (check out that collar!) at a free clothing exchange.  Susan loves fashion from the 1950’s and 60’s, and was pretty sure she could make this dated dress retro fabulous.


Drawing inspiration from two vintage patterns, Susan remade the bodice.  She made it more fitted and took away the double-breasted button detail.  She changed the collar so that it would be smaller in the front and larger in the back, with some nifty button detailing.  Doesn’t it look fantastic, now?
