I'm starting a new trend that I'm sure it'll catch on ... TRASH FASHION!
Yes, thank you very much, I will wear that amazing blue dress from the 50s that fits if you set it out by the road when we are drive-by junking (see here). Oh, and that other one? Yes, please!
I never complain about free. You can see (on the left) that this dress is shorter than my petticoat. It doesn't look terrible, but I'm not sure if I love the show-your-petticoat look. So I'm contemplating either cutting the petticoat or lengthening the hem of the dress - it's been hemmed by hand a good 3-4". But I'm afraid that the hemmed crease may be permanent and look funny once I take it out. What do you think??
It also looks fine without the petticoat (see below), although it is quite thin! Does anyone even own a slip anymore? Moreover, does anyone even know what they are for??
The other dress may be early 60s (see this juniors' pattern I have HERE) but either way, it's fun and unlike any dress I have.
Oh, and did I mention they were FREE!? Would you wear something you dug out of a trashpile?
