I couldn’t get over my hatred for the sleeves of this dress.
I am not pleased. I love the color of this dress, but the button-up neckline and poufy sleeves were killing it for me.
So…I removed the sleeves with my seam ripper. This actually took quite a while as the seams were verrrrry well-serged.
Now we’re getting somewhere!
See all of those leftover broken threads? Rather than picking them all out (which takes forever), roll over them with a sticky lint roller. 🙂 It’ll take ’em right out in no time.
I took the raw edges, turned them under, and pinned them.
I ran the new armholes through my machine. Muuuuch better! This dress works perfectly as a sun dress! I unbuttoned all but one of the buttons on the front placket, and was ready for a delightful leisurely day!
I went for a walk along the riverbank…
followed by a tasty melon cocktail at Wet Willie’s! 🙂
I hope everyone is having a mahvelous weekend! 🙂
