A beautiful purple dress presented itself while cruising the aisles at a National Off-Price Store.
It was knit (so very comfortable) with a pleated front that had empire waist shaping defined by a small rectangle.
Comfort and shaping – a rather unique combination!
With a price of less than $14 – it was purchased.
The empire waist rectangle was embellished with 4 (ugly) large black, plastic ovals. I guess they might be referred to as “lozenge” shaped.
The lozenges were sewn on – which, of course, to we-who-sew means they are not permanent.
Oddly, when I showed the dress to my teenage daughter – she thought the lozenges were the “best part” of the dress?
Apparently, the lozenges were sewn on by Sew-zilla. They were sewn on to stay! Removing them left very obvious stitch marks.
But as the design plan was to embellish the rectangle, the stitch marks could easily be “disappeared.”
A goddess face, some embroidery, lace, and beads (all from The Stash!) and the dress transformed from Lozenges to Lovely!
Wish all dresses were this comfortable!
