tweaked and tailor made

One of the things I am really looking forward to in Thailand is tailor made custom clothing at a reasonable price. I have a few ideas that I am taking with me to see what I can have made. The first is this little number by Odd Molly.

I'd like fabric that is a little less busy and I'll want to add some sleeves. I'm thinking some flouncy pirate sleeves would look nice. I'd also like to find some hand embroidered trim to use for the cross detail at the neckline.

I found this dress and overcoat, also by Odd Molly, that I'd like to tweak a little. We'll see what I end up with. It will be an adventure.

Here's a little sneak peak at tomorrow's giveaway.

I love that you are taking ideas with you (love the top!) and how you want things modified to your specs. Can't wait to see what you come back with!

A trip to Tailand, how exciting!
I love the green coat you have shown here, I am so into that color at the moment and I love jackets and coats, they make you look good and hide a lot too :)
