Dressed in Leather

IMG_2812 IMG_2813

I got given this dress a while ago. It’s a beautiful leather dress with tassels and a sort of scaly luminescent leather insert. I absolutely love it, however it didn’t quite fit right. A little too short for my liking, the straps needed to be altered and the lining was puckering funny at the back where it connected to the leather. Nothing  major, but just enough that it stopped me from wearing it. I think I put off fixing it for so long because I was a bit scared of sewing leather.

I have a wedding to go to so I have finally motivated myself to ‘make it work’. I got a leather needle for my sewing machine and put my head down.

Its a bit of a mashed job. The lining doesn’t quite make it. But the skirt is now a tad longer.

The finished product… A dress for the wedding.

Who else has that perfect garment in their wardrobe they just haven’t renovated yet?
