That is, the fabric is gorgeous but the cut looks decidedly like a bin bag. Fear not, our revamp expert Lucy Housman will show you how to turn your sack into a gorgeous, Fifties inspired frock. 5 Responses Andrea February 16th, 2009 This is fantastic! Thanks so much. Am going to try this immediately. 🙂 Anna March 25th, 2009 Wow that was great and your dress looks terrific. I’ve got 80’s bridesmaid dresses that need revamping so this has given me some inspiration. 🙂 Amelia Raley October 8th, 2009 Very cute! edgertor October 9th, 2009 it’s glamorous, and you did a good job, but it’s not ’50s in the least! Stephanie October 21st, 2009 I was just thinking the same thing as ‘edgertor’, It’s not very 50’s but it is still very nice, and you did a good job. I do need to get my sewing machine fixed so I can raid the charity shops and jazz up some dresses.
