Monday: Mend-day

I found this interesting back wrap dress at the local op shop looking a bit worse for wear. The shirring elastic across the front neckline had perished, and it weirdly tied from the back around the front, which made it look way too busy or fussy…

I replaced the shirring on the neckline with 3 rows of gathers (firmly anchored) and then changed the ties so now it does up in a bow at the back (pleasingly asymmetrically).

I rather think it will get a new lease on life this Spring!
