Welcome to the FINAL CHAPTER in the saga of…
Yesterday’s dress was really awesome! A lot of you said you wanted me to just stop what I was doing and leave it be. For those people, all I can say is…
Time to get a choppin’! 🙂
I decided to turn this dress into a top, just to try and make it into something totally different from its previous incarnations.
That middle part is going to be the foundation of my new piece! I folded the top raw edge under once, pinned it, and stitched it down! I used a zigzag stitch so it would stay stretchy.
Remember the leftover side scraps from the second version of this dress? I’m glad I saved them, as they were going to come in handy for this refash! I cut them into two identical strips, folded them in half, then stitched them up!
I turned each of the fabric tubes inside-out and pinned them to the top of my new top!
Then, I stitched them down!
“Well that’s not very exciting!” you’re saying to yourself right now. “Big whup! A boring tank top!” you’re adding.
But wait…there’s more! 🙂
I took the bottom high-low scrap and snipped a bit off the bottom. Then, I folded the top edge under twice.
I ran this through my machine, using a straight stitch!
I grabbed my scissors and started snipping!
This took a while.
I pinned my new fringy thingy all the way around my new top like so:
For my final trick, I stitched it down with a zigzag!
I wore the third version of this dress to California Dreaming where Erin and I consumed several ridiculously cheap drinks!
When I say cheap, I mean cheap. House liquor drinks are $1.95 apiece. All the time. Always!
This pleased us.
That’s it! This is the last one! The end of One Dress, Three Ways!
But I want to know which one was YOUR favorite version?
