I got this dress at the thrift store last week. When I got it it was much longer. My family thought I was crazy for getting it, but I knew it just needed a hem and it would be lovely - at least I hoped so. I'm so glad I got it now!! You can't tell very well, but I gave this dress a wide hem (3" or so) like I did on my homemade dress as well. It's one of my favorite details on dresses - I think it adds so much character!My younger sister, Maddie (she hates when I call her my "little sister") helped me take these pictures Friday night since my original plan of taking pictures at the beach didn't work out. We had fun and I got some good pictures of her and the dog that I'm going to post on my photography blog later this week.
