Another classy changing room photo shoot for this post.

I think this could be my favourite dress of the moment, I spotted it on eBay from a vintage shop, they specialised in retro and vintage costumes but had a few quirky pieces for sale too. 
This dress was actually classed as a vintage 1950's night dress and was floor length when I originally bought it. 
I knew instantly that I would make it quite a bit shorter when I bought it and once I received it in the post, I cut quite a bit off.. I'm really happy with the idea of shortening the dress because it means I get to have a chunk of the lovely leopard fabric which I can use to either make something else or even a little accessory to match. 
I love buying vintage things because they are usually so well made and also kind of one off's since you can't just go out and find the exact same item on the high street, making the garment a little bit more special.

Have you found any vintage pieces lately?
&I hope you're all well.

  1. I'm always so hesitant to alter vintage clothes but your dress looks so gorgeous, I must try it myself one day! Can't wait to see what you do with the leftover material too <3
