Happy Pink Saturday to you! What a special day it is as we celebrate the second year of Pink Saturdays at How Sweet the Sound! Be sure to check Beverly's blog out for a special giveaway and lots of ladies partying with pink.
I love vintage clothes. I adore the fabrics and the femininity of the styles. Sadly, my curves don't always fit into the tiny sizes of the 40's and 50's dresses, but I was giddy to find this lovely summer wrap robe on ebay with such a pretty print and in my size!
Isn't the fabric yummy? I wanted to enjoy my find to the fullest, so I gritted my teeth and took the scissors to it and cut off some of the bottom. Just wearing this around the house as a summer robe wasn't doing the trick for me...but a summery wrap dress???? Oh, yes!
I also took off the pocket, which hit at a really unflattering spot. I added some eyelet lace to the bottom and sewed up the "wrap" part, so the dress doesn't have me having a Janet Jackson wardrobe malfuction.
I may never be a size 9 again in this lifetime, but it is wonderful to be able to wear something pretty and feminine. Plus, my husband liked it, and that is always an added bonus. I would love to link up to My Romantic Home's Show and Tell Friday. It feels so good to have a project actually completed!
So, there is my touch of pink for today. Happy Birthday to Beverly who has been so gracious to host Pink Saturday for two years now!
