I find it so much fun to customize a vintage dress. This one got shortened and became strapless.
With my size 38 I am not stick thin and the ruffles make me look a size 40, but hey Sophia Loren and Marilyn were a 38/40 and looked hot.
So I embrace my curves and look and feel very feminine in this cocktail dress.
Designed by Nettie Vogues London W.I. which was probably made somewhere in the 60s.
She also designed for princes Diana, pretty cool to own a dress by her hand and eeehhh mine :-)
What do you think, did it work out for the better?
ps. and the red patent heels are by ZARAtrf (buy here)
