Happy Monday friends!! I'm so excited to share this vintage dress today - while I was recently shopping with my mom, I showed her this brown and cream tiered dress. She turned up her nose and said that 'looks like a dress to wear to a rodeo!' Admittedly, it needed help. The ratty rope trim, in particular, needed replacing and I thought that brown pom pom trim would be perfect. I also replaced the zipper and straps (with fabric from the hem) and sewed up a few seams. And once I tried it on with a petticoat, I thought the silhouette was perfect. Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a great week!

I really love it! It's your vintage clothes (and your knack for altering them to suit you) that keeps me following you.
