How did this happen? Today I had a guest with me while I refashioned. Sara from Dateline Carolina chatted and snapped pics while I worked. It was fun talking with her about my process, but sadly I got distracted…and…completely forgot to take any before or during pics. :/
Today’s dress began as being too big and frumpy. I liked the plaid print, and I loved that is was handmade. :)
I took in a bunch from the back, so I could hold on to this really neat side snap. I just don’t see these very much anymore, and I’d hate to get rid of it.
In taking it in from the back, the collar ended up with an obvious raw seam, so I made a small panel to cover it up. No prob!
I also took away some of that length, and turned it into a sash. Sadly, you don’t get to see any of that. :(
Fortunately, Sara was nice enough to send me a few pics. :) Here’s me in action!
I promise…I’m not sad! :)
Later that night, I couldn’t believe that I forgot to take the flippin’ pictures! I consoled myself with copious amounts of Indian food. :)
I promise…I won’t let this happen again!
At least you have a nifty article to look forward to reading! :D I’ll be sure to share it with you as soon as it’s published!
