I love this dress colour & the supersoft fabric, but the shape! the size! SO 90s!
To fix this dress I planned simply to do a quick chop & that's all. BUT when I chopped then washed (for the billioneth time) it shrank! Just a touch but still, it looked tight in the arm area. So I used the 8 inches that I lopped off the bottom, opened the armhole a bit, and set in some sleeves. I always prefer sleeves for work clothes anyhow, just a personal preference. Not sure if the redo actually updates this one or not, though.
Not sure about this one. Certainly fits in with the
garden theme! But perhaps a bit small? Too dated?
|Dress #2: The original sack o' fabric|
|Shorten by 7 inches|
|Trim the sleeve|
|Tie the little self-tie in front to add some|
shape. Now I love it as a garden
party dress :) This one I really love.
It feels new and yet vintage-y.
I just want you to know how much I am enjoying your refashioning series - very inspiring!ReplyDelete
Thank you! It's fun to experiment a bit :)Delete
