A Too Darn Hot No-Sew Dress Refashion

Elefun Dress Vol. 2!
A Seersucker House Dress to Day Dress Refashion


It’s hot.

It’s been mind-numbingly, skull-thumpingly hot here in SC lately.  

Forgive me for being lazy, but when I pulled this dress off my Refashion rack, I just wasn’t in the mood to sew.  

Unfortunately, this dress wasn’t going to work on a 100+ degree day as-is.  :/

No sew dress refashion before

Not to worry!  I had a plan to refashion this frumpy dress that didn’t involve any sewing at all!  

First, I snipped out those shoulder pads.

removed shoulder pads from dress
Pads & MORE pads!

Check it out!  There were actually back-up pads for the already huge pads!

Pads all around!

My shoulders weren’t going to need any protection today though…other than sunscreen that is!

I turned the dress around so the zip-up back was in the front, and pulled my arms through the neck, tucking the top of the new front in.

Got it?

Then, I tied the sleeves under my boobal area, like so:

Almost done!

That’s it my new new-sew dress was born!

Not bad for a 3-minute refash!

I managed to keep cool while sipping mimosas with friends at a VERY fun Drag Brunch with friends!

The ladies were fabulous!

All these awesome costumes leave me inspired to perhaps start refashioning for a completely different kind of demographic ;)…What do you think?  ReDragionista?

It’s not like Patti O’Furnture appears to be in need of style help though…
Or maybe the heat has just gone to my head!
