Ra Ra Vintage Redesign Challenge September 07 2011, 0 Comments

We at Ra Ra have set ourselves a bit of a fun challenge. From now until New Years we will be redesigning and remaking a vintage dress a week. Party season is looming so it seems like the perfect time to pull out all those frumpy vintage numbers that have been stashed away in the "to do" box and give them a makeover (or in some cases a makeunder). So here's our first project (Due in store next Wed Sep 14):

The drawing above is my vision for this dress but with a bit of tweaking and draping it could well change. I found some cool turquoise taffeta in the fabric stash which will be cut to create a brand new circle skirt. The top will be tailored with short sleeves. This will be a fun one and I can't wait to see how it turns out. Visit the store next Wed Sept 7 for the first dibs on this little number.
