When Patti at Revente’s Last Call handed me this piece, I knew it would make a perfect refashion!
You’re looking at a handmade dress that someone didn’t quite finish. Given the shapelessness of the thing, I can understand why!
You can see where they basted the arm holes, but didn’t add any sleeves.
No worries, slacker who started this dress! 😉 I’ll take over from here!
My first order of business was to close up those arm holes. It’s really warm here, so going sleeveless suited me just fine!
Then I fitted the dress on my dress form to make it nice and snug!
Then, I sewed up each side!
Now that dress is fabu instead of frumpsville! 🙂
