Jamie brought in this polka dot dress she found at a consignment shop that just wasn’t quite right but had so much potential.  She is a performer and ideally wanted to be able to wear the dress to concerts or events, but also wanted it to be a little more modern and fun.

There had also been some home improvements to the dress before she found it, so we needed to make sure we took the special care to get the dress up and running so it would last a long time.  We started by fitting the sides and hemming the bottom with a slight high-lo hem. To finish it off, we slimmed and shorted the sleeves. Now she has an adorable tailored polka dot dress to dress up for her shows, or dress down for heading to a party!
