Today’s dress started off as a way too big lightweight halter dress. Waaaay too big.
The pattern is lovely, and I dig the lightweight fabric for a hot and humid SC day. Unfortunately, this thing is absolutely massive on me!
Not only that, but the shirred elastic back was all wonky and stretched out. 🙁
Luckily, taking care of one problem will take care of the other for this dress. 🙂
I decided to take the dress in from the back, thus eliminating the stretched-out part of the elastic. This was super-duper easy.
First, I pinned all the way down the dress, then I ran it under the needle. 🙂
I lopped off all that excess material and was left with this:
Now I have a verrrrry cute & weather appropriate dress that’s pretty darn fetching!
You can’t even tell I took the back in at all!
I skipped out the door in my new dress to an awesome mid-week party (yep…partying on a school night). 🙂 A girl there commented, “Every time I see you, you’re wearing a different cute dress.”. That made me giggle. 🙂
