Polka Dots

Finished up with these 2 tops today. I just love polka dots....

A Little Restoring

Mike Benet late 60s Dress, this was full length and had some issues at the hemline. I shortened, added cotton daisy appliques with pearl centers on the skirt, center of bow and on the single left shoulder strap. I have this listed on Etsy click here
These are from Betsey Johnson and match the above dress perfectly. This color is so hard to match I was shocked when I held them up to the dress. They colors doesn't look like they match, but believe me they do.  Size 7 and listed on Etsy
The shoes were purchased at Coldwater Creek several years ago for Fashion Shows. I added pearls to the "Chiffon Tiers" to give a more elegant look. These are also listed on Etsy
