I finally tackled my pile of sewing alterations. I hadn't felt like sewing much lately. It's funny, once I start, I can't stop. These dresses are all so much better at a shorter length. It seems I would rather have my 60's and 70's dresses shorter than they come. The dresses I have from the 50's don't bother me in a longer length, but these all needed to be lopped off. My favorite alteration is the 80's dress. It was way to warm to wear here in California (it's a really thick jersey almost like a wool). I chopped a lot off the bottom and cut the sleeves off, it's super cute now. Being that it is black I can wear it to work too!
