For this week’s refashion, I started out with this ugly thing that reminded me of something from my middle-school years…
Yuck! The only thing I liked about this dress was the print.
The first thing I needed to do was alter the hem.
I decided to make a high-low dress, so I only wanted to shorten the front of the dress.
To get it right, I pinched the middle front of the dress and the middle back of the dress and straightened it out on the table like so…
Once it was smoothed out, I trimmed from the middle front, down on an angle to the side seams like this…
The next thing that needed to happen was changing up that hideously high neck-line!
Now just pin and sew…
Well that was easy!
Do you like the way I dressed it up?
This was a fairly easy refashion.
The fabric is so light and airy, it will be perfect for hot summer days!
(Today it’s cold and rainy, so I can’t wait to actually wear it on one of those days!)
Have a great Mother’s Day weekend everybody!
P.S. Here are some links to some similar high-low refashions I’ve been spotting lately…
