I love the dark green hue and subtle print of today’s dress…
…and that’s it! I didn’t like weird cross-over top of the dress at all. It felt really stifling!
I got to snipping!
I carefully snipped the top part away from the bottom part, right along the serged edge, so it wouldn’t fray.
For some dresses, this would be a totally no-sew refash, but I had to stitch down a couple of things before I moved forward.
Next, I pulled it under my arms with the bottom hem as the top, and the smaller waist as the bottom and pinned it once…
Then I began folding it back and forth in front of me, making pleats, like so:
Then, I pinned that from the inside.
Alllllmost done! I pinned one of my favorite brooches to the center of the pleated section (both to accessorize and to secure this dress even further) and that was that! :)
I wore my funky bubble hem dress to work and for an after-work happy hour showing of an terrific installation by local artist, Eileen Blyth!
And here’s a few pics of the installation!
And here’s the artist!
