Lately I started to sew again. I love it because this is so interesting to me and finally I can make things on my own which are not available at any store.  Well, although some things at the stores are appealing to me, they are just to expensive and not unique ­čśÇ
So yesterday I decided to take a walk on Mariehilferstra├če, one of the most famous street for shopping in Vienna. But I did not go to buy something but rather to look what is new.  In Zara I found something what was on sale.  A long beautiful dress just for 5 euro! And of course I bought it! But in my mind I was already having new ideas how to make a remake!
So I went home and modified this dress, and so far I like it. Because the dress was long cut I made this peter pan collar and added some lace as well. 
Before (Notice that this is already the short version because I forgot to photograph when it was long. I used the leftover to make the collar later.)


  1. This is lovely! You may want to visit (and perhaps join) Burdastyle where you can share your creations, inspire others and be inspired. And there are lots of free patterns (and patterns to buy). Hope to see you there! The community is fantastic!


  2. This is so cool! So vintage-nice Ôś║

  3. I like how you try to turn something used in something unique and new!
