Last year a good friend Leah Stahl came to me and asked me if I would help make her daughter a dream dress for her high school dance. I said what is her dream dress? She showed me a picture of a Dr. Who dress, The Vintage Dr.
We do not have time at Sew Dayton to create entire dresses, we teach sewing lessons. I recommended she go buy a brown thrift store dress, rust red + baby blue fabric, interfacing and buttons.
The dress was a hit!
