My favorite dress is a polka dotted, frilly collared, neck tie, puffy sleeved, swinging skirt, vintage dream. I bought it about a year ago in Beyond Retro, and I just wore it once or twice, but thought it was too long. I didn’t want to shorten the hem since I thought it was sacrilegious to do that to such a loverly vintage dress. But finally I realized that leaving it in the closet was wrong, even though it was never alone it still needed to see the world. So I carefully hemmed it by hand, and now I wear it all the time. I love it!
