When Fella invited me over to the radio station where he works for a tasty Christmas Luncheon, my first two thoughts were,
1. “Yay! Free Food!”
2. “Wait a tic…What’ll I wear?”
I decided on this festive frock! 🙂
This dress actually fit me really well, but the length was not working. Also, the lining was peeking out from the outer layer.
How to Sew an Easy DIY Hem
The first step I needed to take was pretty obvious.
I chopped off some of the bottom length.
Then I pinned my new hem down, by folding it under twice to hide that raw edge.
I put my new dress under the needle as I fantasized about the tasty French food I was about to be be wolfing down. 🙂
I took the sashy tie-things and wrapped them around my back to the front, and pinned them to the front with a pretty vintage flower pin.
Now that thrift store dress that used to have a wonky lining is perfect for a day of lunching and finishing up on my holiday errands! 🙂
