Vintage Vivant – La Vie Parisienne!

Last post for the evening.

So,Vintage Vivant was supposed to be on vacation for July.  Then, out of the blue it was back on with a Love on the Left bank theme.  I had no clue what I was going to wear.  Then I decided to do what the French did best.  Lacy underthings.  I turned a sad cotton sundress that I had purchased at Treasure City for a quarter into cami-bloomers.  It wasn’t a difficult transformation.  It was just a pain to remove the tiny pink sequins scattered all over the dress.


Before: Cotton Sundress

I located the center of the skirt front and back and cut a slit to create bloomer legs. Then I sewed the inseams together. I debated adding lace or elastic at the bottom but decided it was too much. A last minute Target run landed me some awesome stockings (one day I will make sock garters for them).
