Hello everyone! I won this vintage '70s Hawaiian sundress in a giveaway last summer, but the color was a little brighter then I'm used to. Also, the neckline of this dress was a little high, so I did the unthinkable (for me at least) I refashioned the neckline. Guys, I cut into a vintage dress! I dislike cutting up, taking apart anything vintage (70s or earlier), so this was hard for me to do. Anyhow, even after refashioning the neckline (so it didn't choke me anymore), I still found the dress a bit bright. Fast forward to this summer and I realized, hey I can tone down the dress with my jean jacket -- now I don't feel like it is so very bright. *smile*
