This is an epic day, my friends! I’ve done it! I have created the perfect refashion! What follows is my by far my personal favorite refashion to date! :)
It started off pretty ominously with this wool/acrylic blend turtleneck dress that wasn’t doing me any favors. :/
I wasn’t even sure what I could do to save this one…so, I started cutting!
I closed up that raw edge at the top of the dress…
…then I threw this barren husk of a dress on my dress form inside-out and started taking it in!
I ran each side through my machine, and was left with an okay-looking tube dress.
But that just wasn’t good enough!
I cut off the sleeves from the original dress…
And pinned them to the top of my new dress.
This is about the time I started getting really excited!!!
I stitched my new sleeves down…
…and now I have a perfect little black dress! :)
Here’s how I wore it at work:
…and here’s how I wore it at play! :)
So, why am I so ecstatic about this really basic dress?
- It’s super-comfy!
- It’s extremely versatile! I can dress it up or down and wear it to just about anything!
- It’s black!
- It’s a really simple & straightforward refash…even for you newbies out there!
- This type of refashion would be flattering on all sorts of body types!
I kept rocking my frock into the wee hours of the morning!
This was a special evening, in which I attended a midnight showing of the most brilliant movie ever in the entire universe, known as The Room!
So now I have created the perfect little black dress, and I’ve shown you how to do the same. I think I can quit this blog now and die happy! :)
