From Lozenges to Lovely! The Purple Dress

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!
