Day 224: Annie Dress 2
Butterflies are free to fly...

I’m not gonna lie.  I used to love butterfly collars.  In my high school days I had a really impressive collection of funky polyester shirts.  🙂

Fortunately, those days are (far) behind me!  🙂  I immediately got to work at ripping off that massive collar!

Pick...Pick...Pick...

Then, I snipped off some of the length from those sleeves.

I put my new dress on my dress form inside-out, and pinned each side…

Pin it!

…and then ran each side through my machine!

Day 224: Annie Dress 5
Whirrrrrrr!

I cut off the extra fabric, and then got to work on closing up all those raw edges from where I removed the collar.

Day 224: Annie Dress 6
Pin it! Sew it! Be done with it!

Now my dress is looking sleek and stylish!
