finally my newly altered vintage dirndl dress is ready for show and tell. as I was saying in a previous post, I had the hem shortened a bit so it would be knee length, and I am wearing it front to back. I really like how the bare back looks. I totally forgot to put on the matching jacket, ups, but I promise I will show it to you guys soon. in fact, I think it looks kinda costume-y if I wear them both. I try not to take vintage literally, and add some accessories for a mix and match vintage look. I am wearing my handmade fruit earrings and brooch, created by a romanian artist and yellow tights to make the overall look fun and playful. you might have noticed something else that's new: my lotus tattoo. I am so excited about the way it turned out, and I am happy to show it now that it's all healed up.
