Day 275: Frankentop

Day 276: Indigo For It Dress
Day 274: Deco Dress

I’m sure you guys remember when I cut into this piece from Day 269.

Day 275: Frankentop 2
But what happened to that top part?

And hopefully some of you remember when I refashioned the top part of this dress from Day 142

Day 275: Frankentop 3
What will become of that bottom scrap?

I really loved the fabric on both of these pieces, so I decided to make like Mary Shelley and create a Frankentop!  🙂

First, I trimmed the bottom of the piece from Day 142 to match the width of the top of what would soon be my new top.  I left a bit of a seam allowance so I could sew it back up and still have it match the top.

Then, I pinned this fabric tube to the top of the dress from Day 269.

Day 275: Frankentop 5
Fold it under, and pin!

Then, I stitched it all together!

Day 275: Frankentop 6
Two becoming one! 🙂

There was no need to hem the bottom of this one, as I was using a scrap that already had a hem in place, so I was good to go!
