During my 366 (It was a leap year!) day project, I did quite a few no-sew refashions, but I’ve really stayed away from those as of late. I’ve gotten a few emails asking for refashion ideas for those of you who don’t have/don’t want/are violently fearful of a sewing machine. Well…this refash is for you! :)
I started off with this $1 thrifted little old ladyish dress right here:
I love the paisly pattern, but the fit/style is just plain off.
I didn’t feel like sewing, so I did this:
…which was quickly followed by this:
I tied the sleeves into what I call a “bathrobe knot”. Not a full bow, just half of one (I really hate bows, which is why you don’t ever see them here. Go ahead…try and find one. I dare ya!).
Check that dress out now!
I added on a colorful belt to cinch the waist, and tossed on some turquoise sandals (there’s a bit of turquoise in the print of the dress, but it’s hard to see here).
I think it looks rather nice, but Douglas seems unimpressed. :/
Meh. Everyone’s a critic! :/
