Day 303: Babies of the Eighties Top

Day 304: A Pregnant Pause Dress
Day 302: Party Animal Dress

Welcome back to the 1980’s, everybody!  🙂  Today’s piece is a fitted & shoulderpadded number that reminds me of one I had as a kid!

Erg.

It’s not all bad news here though!  Right now bright neon colors are incredibly in, so all this dress needs is a bit of an update.  🙂

First, I ripped out those shoulder pads, as I had no intention of playing any full-contact sports that day.  😉

rrrrrrip!

I thought this dress would work much better as a top, so I hacked off some of the length.

Leftovers!

Then I snipped off those way-too-dated sleeves!

Sssssnip!

I cut a few triangle-shaped notches along the edge of my new armholes.  This makes it easier to fold them over for pinning!

Day 303:  Babies of the Eighties Top 6
Just like that!

After I pinned my arm holes with the greatest of ease, I ran each one through my machine!

Whirrrr!

Then I gave that bottom raw edge a new hem as well!

Now that 80’s top is looking way more current!  🙂
