Day 84: Den Mother Dress

When I saw today’s dress, I fell in love.  I knew it would be perfect for Fall!  🙂

Foliage!

Time to get to work!  I snipped off the bottom pleated tier from the dress.

Byeeeeee!

I’ll definitely be able to use the leftovers from this refashion later.  The gears are turning already.  🙂

Back to the dress!  I took in each side.

Pinned!

Then I put it under the needle!

Whirrrrrr!

After trimming away all that extra fabric, I still needed to give that neckline a little help.   The back of the dress has a button closure.  I put the dress on backwards, removed the buttons, and pinned down a new V-neck!

Pin it. Then sew it!

I stitched my V-neck down and pressed my new dress.  Now it’s perfect for early Fall!  🙂

Lovin' those leaves! 🙂

My new dress was comfy as could be for a day of work, followed by an evening of Rifftrax with friends!  🙂
