When I got home I took a few quick pictures to show you one of my most favorite vintage dresses. It belonged to the grandmother of my pre-school (!) best friend, whose mom gave it to my mom when she was an avid vintage collector. It's known affectionately around my mom's house as the Brady Bunch dress because it looked like something Marcia would wear and Jan would be jealous of.
Recently the dress underwent a little revamp to help integrate it more with my everyday wardrobe. It used to have beautiful sheer sleeves but they had to go. They were far too long, the elastic had gone in the bell at the bottom making them hang down past my hands and in my opinion made the dress look costumey. A girl at the event suggested a few clever uses for the sleeve fabric that I might be attempting soon including a rosette and a neck scarf.
