It's been a while since I last wrote. I've been helping my husband with the house and its been a very busy six months or so. Currently I'm unwell with a bad back. I digress!
I bought this beautiful wounded bird from a fantastic ebay seller. I bought a dress from her last year and I fell in love with the rose print on this dress.
The under arms were shredded and it was coming apart in various places.
I have got after photos to start with and before below photos. I paid £10 with free postage.
I have reinforced the under arms with excess material taken from the inside hem if the dress and I've sewn it to match previous repairs.
I have used iron on mender stitched in place and then sealed with heat.
I've repaired the skirt as well.
I sewed the popper back on it was luckily still attached!
I took off the mismatched buttons and added off white ribbon to tidy up the edges.
I added a button in the same orange as the rose print.
