I’ve had today’s piece for quite a while. I really wasn’t quite sure what I’d be able to do with it! :/
See what I mean? You’d be intimidated too!
By the way, don’t let that fence behind me fool ya. My neighbors can totally see me when I do my before pics outside. They probably think I’m insane! :)
Anywho…back to this insane muumuu! I chose it for its cute foodie print. :)
Sadly, this thing is just flippin’ huge on me! I decided to take it in from the back…a LOT! On my dress form it went!
Then, I sewed a single seam down my pinned line.
This left me loads of extra fabric to snip off!
Okay…so now my new dress is looking much better and size-appropriate! But, I still needed to hike up the length a good bit more.
Chop & Hem! :)
Check that wonky muumuu out now! :)
Such a fun little frock! :)
Now I just need to wear it to the grocery store! :)
This comfy cotton dress is just the thing for a hot SC day! :)
Fun with camera filters! :)
Today’s piece began as a frumpy black sun dress.
Nothing exciting to see here, folks!
It isn’t very exciting, is it? It had a little problem as well!
Oh dear! The bottom crocheted detailing had begun to unravel and rip! :/
I grabbed my scissors, and snipped it off altogether.
Then, I made another cut to the dress.
Dress No More!
Next, I gave what was about to be my new top a new hem!
Okay, so what was once a dress was now a shirt. Big deal, right? But, HA! I’m not quite finished yet! :)
I took a piece of the original crocheted bottom and pinned it on the front of my new top in a big loopy pattern.
I stitched right down the middle of the loopy thing, like so…
Carefully stitching along!
…and now that boring, ripped up dress is a fun and pretty top! :)
Hmmmnnn…what’s over there?
Why, yes. Those are scrub pants. Don’t judge me! ;)
Today’s piece looks like it might have been some sort of uniform in a previous life.
Holy bad hair day, Batman!
Neither that dress nor my locks were looking too great. :/ And style wasn’t the only thing missing from this sad dress.
The worst thing about this dress was its shapelessness, so I got to pinning!
Then, I got to sewing!
Then, I got to snipping!
Now that frumpy dress is a cute new top that works perfectly with my pencil skirt! I put my uncooperative hair back in a snood, and was ready for my day! :)
