Minty Vintage Alterations

alterations for Betsy
I did some alterations about a month ago for a stylish girl named Betsy.  I  have a rule to not do alterations, but her taste is so great, I knew it would be something worth doing!

When it first arrived at my house it had a chokingly high neckline, and long sleeves.  She's very tall and athletic, so the shoulders and armholes were too tight and the hem was too short.  I completely took off the sleeves, changed the neckline, and made the hem tea length (not awkward ankle length).

It's such a beautiful dress, I'm glad I was able to make it wearable, but keep the vintage feel.
