Making Stuff: Mod Flower Dress

by This is Carrie on May 23, 2009

One of the souvenirs I brought back from NYC was this 70’s dress kit from a Long Island City (and incredibly stinky) thrift store.I couldn’t quite picture myself pulling off the double-knit polyester mod look. But I knew my six year old could rock it.

Flower pocket came pre-embroidered.
Kit included zipper, thread, interfacing, etc.

How adorable. Your girl models it very well, too! Which thrift store…I’m from NYC and haven’t been to li city in a few years since moving to Staten Island after the birth of my daughter. …Didn’t know there were thrift stores there now!

Kage – Shoes on sale at Target. Score.

Heliotrope – No idea even the name of the store or where it was even. Vernon Blvd maybe? Tiny. Smoky. That’s all I remember.

Everyone else – Thanks!
