When Patti at Revente’s Last Call handed me this piece, I knew it would make a perfect refashion!

It'll be perfect, I say!

You’re looking at a handmade dress that someone didn’t quite finish.  Given the shapelessness of the thing, I can understand why!

You can see where they basted the arm holes, but didn’t add any sleeves.

Unfinished Business!

No worries, slacker who started this dress!  😉  I’ll take over from here!

My first order of business was to close up those arm holes.  It’s really warm here, so going sleeveless suited me just fine!

Finishing off that arm hole!

Then I fitted the dress on my dress form to make it nice and snug!

De-Frumping!

Then, I sewed up each side!

Now that dress is fabu instead of frumpsville!  🙂
