REPURPOSED

I've had this 1960's funeral dress for as long as I can
remember, I think I even wore it at my mom's funeral
back in 1997.
I've tried to sell it for a while but no one have shown
the slightest interest and I'm kind of glad to be honest
because I love the pattern.
I feel like I'm past my goth period, I feel a bit too old
to look like Wednesday Addams and I got a whole lot
of other black dresses that are much nicer, the shape
of this dress is not quite to my liking.
I asked myself the question how long can I hang on to
clothes I never wear, and then it occurred to me, why
don't I turn it into a top? I'm low on nice black tops for
fall and winter, and so I did this morning.
It was even handy for when I photographed my faux fur
collars for today's Etsy listings. :D

Before.

After.

The pattern up close.

It's lovely and it has a story behind it. No one bought it because it was meanrt to stay with you. x

It was really meant to stay with you.
