Day 322: Refashioner’s Block: Dress to Top Refashion

Day 323: In the Details Top
Day 321: Here Comes the Rain Dress

When I put on today’s piece, I really didn’t know what I wanted to do with it right away. I was in a slump!

Day 322:  Refashioner's Block: Dress to Top Refashion 1
What direction shall I go in?

It was sort of like having Writer’s Block…only Refashioner’s Block! 

I eventually decided to stop thinking about it and just start doing.  Any step forward was probably in the right direction!  🙂

First, I took the dress in!

Dress Pinned on dress form
Pinning the sides!
Sewing dress side on sewing machine
Follow the Pinned Path!

I cut off the extra fabric with my pinking shears (This is to keep the sides from fraying, btw).

I tried it on, and noticed a BIG problem!

How’d I miss THAT?!?!!!

Luckily, this was a quick fix!

mending hole on side seam
Just re-stitch the seam! 🙂

I decided to make this dress into a top for the day.  I chopped it off, and gave it a nice new hem!

Pin & Stitch!

My new top is light & flowy!  I loves!  🙂

I can’t decide if this pose looks cute, or if I just look like I need to pee. :/
