Today’s piece began as a frumpy black sun dress.
It isn’t very exciting, is it? It had a little problem as well!
Oh dear! The bottom crocheted detailing had begun to unravel and rip! :/
I grabbed my scissors, and snipped it off altogether.
Then, I made another cut to the dress.
Next, I gave what was about to be my new top a new hem!
Okay, so what was once a dress was now a shirt. Big deal, right? But, HA! I’m not quite finished yet! 🙂
I took a piece of the original crocheted bottom and pinned it on the front of my new top in a big loopy pattern.
I stitched right down the middle of the loopy thing, like so…
…and now that boring, ripped up dress is a fun and pretty top! 🙂
