The Leslie Fay Has A New Day In The Sun!! Vintage Dress Refashion!

Posted on

This was a Leslie Fay vintage dress that I thrifted a very long time ago.  It has been sitting on my refashion pile for quite a while but today I decided that I would do a whole bunch of refashioning and putting new hems on some dresses.  This dress was the first one I decided to refashion.

Here it is before I attacked it with the seam ripper.

First I took off the huge shoulder pads.

Then I took of the awkward length sleeves.

Then I just folded the raw edges over and hemmed the sleeve openings.  Now it fits much better.  I may have to tweak it some more as summer approaches, but as it stands now, I am much happier with how it looks.  What do you think of my Leslie Fay dress that will have a new day in the sun after my refashion?  Cheers, Michele
