secondskin 's Thoughts:

I just wanted to show you these dresses I hemmed! Installment 3/3 was something I did on my own a couple of months ago that was originally a long sleeved, collared, below the knee monstrosity. I wore it with this blazer and booties (no leggings) during the summer to an independent horror film festival. If you look closely at the print you will see it is little guys with guitars! It was the print that sold me on it, but the shape was a little too much and super dowdy. I am happy that sewing machines give us the power to reinvent things. I generally do not alter vintage things if they are signature, classic shapes, but I feel less precious about the 80’s.

One More thing! Be sure to check out the VERY chic Jasna’s Style Scoop column about Chictopian Style trends at :http://www.stylescoop.co.za/?p=10832

She highlights a handful of Chictopians wearing colored tights! Great column!
