I’m still in shock.
This dress is the sartorial equivalent of the Biggest Loser. Because it used to look like this…
How’d my tailor work that magic?
Well, she lopped off the sleeves, widened the collar and removed the old-lady lace and tie-dyed appliques. So now it’s pure country-chic.
She also, of course, shortened the hem so it’s the appropriate length for chasing a Bear.
Not that it helped me catch him. That yellow lab is quick.
P.S. I’m going to be lecturing at Simon Fraser University so from now on I’m only going to respond to “Professor”.
OH wow!! I love it!!! Such a sweet dress!
Wow! it’s amazing how you can transform things with a little bit of creativity!
I NEED the name of your tailor…. I have a dress that was given to my by my (future) mother in law to use as a Halloween costume (yes it’s that horrible). It definitely needs a transformation like yours!
Ahhh I’m in shock too! What an amazing transformation. It is now the perfect summer frock! And how perf that you can wear it to chase a yellow lab. You’ll be the hottest lady in the doggie park xo
That’s an incredible transformation. I thought when you tried it on at dinner that it would never be possible for it to look so cute.
Woah, that it is indeed a major transformation! I love it belted and kind of blouse-y up top. Very cute!
how much did your tailor charge you? and did you have to discuss it before hand or what was the process like? im really intrigued!!
Amazing!!! The dress looks absolutely outstanding. I gotta get to this tailor!
In Shock… it is amazing now… I want it!
Wow you really need to feature your tailor on here b/c they are amazing!!

That is the most incredible transformation! Wow! You and your tailors could take over the world with miracles like that:-)
Oh my gosh! I can’t believe how amazing that looks, so pretty! Perfect for summer and the biggest dress transformation I’ve ever seen! I saw that before post when you put it up and I just stared at the photo in bewilderment, obviously not a sew-er, but I didn’t realize it could be so cute! xx

[…] complaining. That’s where two of The Anthology’s best before-and-afters came from: the granny nightie and the Hammer pants (thank you, Surina and […]
What a great job! Oh, and labs are fast indeed. I have a black one, and he is always the fastest dog around, so I know what you mean :)
Ridiculous, Kelsey! Love this so much.
