Day 185: Is this Navy or Black?

Day 186: A Ruffled Tee Fit For Me!
Day 184: How to Take In a Dress for New Year's Eve

Hi everyone!  🙂  So…this is my first post and first refashion of 2012!  I’m a couple of days behind on my posts (don’t worry, I’ve been refashioning, I just have to get the time to write about it).  I promise to get all caught up in the next couple of days.

Today’s piece was a not-so-lovely Navy or Black dress (I still can’t tell!) with a funky red and white pattern on it.

Hrmmnnn...

I decided to make the back of the dress the front of the dress.  First, I used my handy seam ripper to get rid of those buttons.

Rip 'em off! 🙂

Then I pinned down a nice V neck, and stitched it up!

I chopped off the excess length, and now I have a cute new dress!  🙂

  1. Looks black via the pics. I can’t believe you have been diligent with posts so far. Just want to say you rock as far as refashioning AND blogging. I have enjoyed a ton so far and keep up the great work !

  2. Since coming across your blog about a month ago I have been madly reshaping items which I was about to give away. So now I have lots of ‘new’ things to wear! And I am inspired to try not buying new clothes for as long as possible but to try charity shop refashioning. So thank you for the idea and inspiration.
