🌻🌻🌻 Just kidding. It's a tear away dress train I worked on awhile ago for rockstar burlygirl sugar_vixen. Mmm scalloped lace over two toned silk chiffon. Yum. . . . . . #misskellymakes #forthemischievousminded #burlesqueglamour #burlesquemtl #silk #lace #costume #burlesquecostume #vintagealterations

WASHING VINTAGE: The accepted idea that True Vintage should be hand washed has its merits. However, there are serious issues surrounding this "given" that need to be reconsidered. My #1940s blue #polkadot dress was reduced to a skirt due to the unstable condition of the bodice. It would never have survived a hand-wash. So I designed a method and process of gentle prep and wash - in a machine. Pic collage 1) The now rebuilt skirt before its wash (note the discolouration of the white dots). Also the cleaning product is natural "Soap Nuts", not modern detergent. The nut husks are simmered for 10mins and the cooled liquid is decantered. The skirt is placed in a micromesh net bag to hold the material together. Then a colour collector cloth is added. Pic 2) Soap Nut Shells and liquid Pic collage 3) Washing collection of Soap Nuts, Micro-mesh bag with skirt, colour collector cloth. Pic collage 4) Placed in a washing machine set to "rinse", 0 temp, spin 400. This gentle setting is easier on the vintage material than hand rubbing or mulching. Soup Nut liquid is added in 2 stages. Mild condioner is also later used. Note the dark dirty colour of the water in the drum, hard to see I know. Pic 5) The filthy difference of the colour collector after washing. Pic 6) Skirt drying in the sun. I either drip dry or lay flat on a clothes horse.

The last thing I do on a dress is put the label in. This is a moment of subtle tension. The perfectionist in me never feels totally satisfied or finish, but the time line is the time line and I know really I have done my best. Looking back 6 months later is always good to put things in perspective. #thephscologyofsewing #vintagealterations #theproblemoffinishing #vintageweddingdress #vintagebridal

Yesterday we called it the Battle of Sheepskin in the alterations dept. We enlarged the sleeve width of a well loved vintage sheepskin jacket - using suede to patch in the pieces. ;) #sheepskins #sheepskin #alterations #alterationsdepartment #madeinsheffield #makedoandmend #vintageatelier #vintagealterations #patchworking #singersewingmachine #suede #iloves #leatherwork #dunecottage #altertofit #alteredtofit

Project "I just quickly let some seam allowances out at hips and thats it" is here, finished. The original dress, vintage early to mid 60s I think, is in bottom left corner. I couldnt fit in although I let everything possible out (my darn bum). But I had a vision and piece of suitable red, nicely draping satin. Made a bolero and added some hem. Left bodice as it was, just cut it at waist and used all hem to make full skirt. Why altering vintage? Because I love the fabric and I want to wear it! Also narrow maxi dresses arent the most popular styles around. #vintagealterations #vintagedress
