and I liked the cut and fit, but it was, I'm pretty sure,
a nightgown. I was really looking for Summer tops and didn't need a nightgown. I thought maybe it could be transformed, a touch of dye, some length cut from the bottom and a wee bit of embroidery on the bodice and ta da! I must admit that when I was purchasing it, the lady at the thrift store commented on how nice it was and looked oh so very shocked once I told her I was going to dye it! She didn't really want to sell it to me after that. Imagine if I'd told her I was going to chop the bottom off it too! That's one Summer top transformation down.
this tutorial by Dee, but I wasn't convinced that bleaching was the way to go for me or this top, darker is more slimming right? Who doesn't need a slimmer mid section? I basically followed what Dee did, but with dye instead of bleach! It worked well and I'm pleased with the results. Transformation number 2 - tick!
