Wednesday Addams’s Dress

It’s not often that I say, “now that is some nice velvet.” In fact I don’t think I had ever said those words until I found this dress.

wednesday addams before-100There isn’t a lot to say about this dress except that it obviously belonged to Wednesday from the Addams family.

I shortened the dress by about 6 inches and chopped off the sleeves then gave them a new hem. I took the sides in about an inch on each side. I also gave the dress new elastic. The old elastic was completely stretched out.

I ripped them off and sewed up that seam. I replaced them on the shoulder because they seemed happy there. Now this dress is ready for something besides a 1960’s tv show.

I decided that it would be the perfect “little black dress” to wear for her bachelorette party! We had a great time and this dress was so comfortable all night long!! Can you even believe how gorgeous the bride to be is?!?
