Restoring a late thirties rayon dress

Cost: 5.00$ due to rotted seams and holes
Time Spent fixing it: About 2 hours
This little dress was in a sad state. I bought it at my favorite local treasure trove which doesn’t even have a name! Terry the owner didn’t want to deal with restoring it so she sold it to me for the fabric. I love the little draped panels in the front and the way the two little points fold down at the neckline. Now if I could only find someone with a 25 inch waist to fit into this!
