You may remember Julie from her vintage dress revamp or her custom Cardi-Blazer, but this time she brought in an old work dress to revamp. She was kind of done with it in it’s current form, and wanted to turn it into something new. So we decided to turn it into a top she could wear for work or play.



We fit the sides and added a waist seam to help tailor in the waist more, hemmed it to be the perfect length, and added an olive green zipper in back for a little classy color pop! And there you go! Perfect with black cigarette pants, skinny jeans, or a pencil skirt!
