linen dress

July 6, 2017

I found this oversized white/cream linen jumper dress at the thrift store. It was quite large, but I did like straight neckline and the straps with the wooden buttons. Also, it had this floral design on the bottom that I wasn’t fond of either. Of course, this size (and the floral motif) could be quickly remedied with a run on the sewing machine. I took it in about 5 inches on each side and hemmed the bottom, thereby removing the floral design, and the dress became exactly what I envisioned. I paired with a white tee under, same one from last week.

My little basket is from my personal collection; it was a gift from my sister-in-law. A friend joked and called it my little “treasure chest.”

If you follow my @wovenfolk IG account, tomorrow I will be releasing some vintage, summer whites. A couple linen blouses and dresses.

on me: shirt, everlane. dress, vintage re-worked. sandals, banana republic. basket, vintage (similar here ).

    Cute dress! I can’t even tell that it has been altered on the sewing machine. Looks like it came this way straight from the store, so you did a good job!
