Yay!  A new old lady dress!  As you know by now, every time I see one of these, I get giddy!  🙂

So…this isn’t very attractive for a fun Friday night.  🙂  Let’s get to work, shall we?

First I chopped off the top of the dress.

Then I folded the raw edge over and pinned it.

I ran the pinned edge through my machine. 

Now I have a casing for some elastic to make the top nice and snug.  🙂

Elastic…it’s fantastic!

Now I have a super-cute little black dress…perfect for an evening hanging out with friends!

First, we swung by The Cigar Box…
