While in Chicago, we managed to find an awesome little vintage store called Knee Deep. The guy working there was highly knowledgeable in the history of just about everything sold there, and helped us out quite a bit, including cutting a few deals. So, just as we were walking out the door, he said we could talk anything we wanted off of the dollar rack for free! Naturally, I grabbed the only velvet dress there; it fit perfectly! After cutting off the sleeves and about a foot of the skirt, I added custom Angelspit detailing with Zoog Von Rock’s help. The patches on the shoulders are white leather with studs, chain, fringe, and safety pins, all hand sewn onto the fabric. The front patch and the red lace trim on the bottom are also hand sewn.
DIY FOREVER. AND HELL YEAH, FREE CLOTHES!
