One of the most amazing singers and performers you will ever see is local L.A. rock goddess Ruby of Ruby Friedman Orchestra. Ruby asked me to do a fabulous rehab on an ill fitting 70’s maxi she had thrifted for a show in London the following week. Of course I said “yes, please!”
First things first Gorgeous Ruby happens to have a perfect hourglass figure. The dress had it going on in the waist but was falling short in the hips and bust line. So we needed to solve that problem while makin’ it a little more rock n’ roll. I removed the zipper, and converted the top closure into a double key hole with long ties. Then I edged the keyholes out with some fabric salvage from what was formerly a sash belt.
Pretty fab in the end, made even more fab when Ruby pulled out these killer Jeffrey Campbell shoes she decided to wear with the dress. I refrained from saying “I die.” The girl is a Rockstar all the way.
