Thrifty Thursday # 4 - Vintage double collar navy wool dress

This is another vintage dress that needed new buttons. Luckily this one is a winter dress, so I can wear it now. It's wool and a bit scratchy, so I need to wear something under it. I took these photos at our old house and was in a big hurry to take the dress off after taking the photos. I didn't even realise how wrinkled it was until now.

I think I should shorten it to about knee length. What do you guys think? I'm not sure about this in-between length. There's a lot of volume around the top and I think slightly less fabric at the bottom will balance it out.

I'm in love with the sheer double collar. It's my favourite part of this dress.

The dress had a shiny purple satin bow right above the top button and purple buttons. I didn't think it matched the dress, so I removed the bow and added new buttons. I finally used the brass buttons Alex sent me with our package swap last year.
