Dressed in Leather

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 ┬ámajor, 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?
