Day 343: Fab Foodie Dress from Housedress Refashion

Day 344: Perfect Pillowcases

I’ve had today’s piece for quite a while.  I really wasn’t quite sure what I’d be able to do with it!  :/

See what I mean? You’d be intimidated too!

By the way, don’t let that fence behind me fool ya.  My neighbors can totally see me when I do my before pics outside.  They probably think I’m insane!  🙂

Anywho…back to this insane muumuu/housedress!  I chose it for its cute foodie print.  🙂

Yum! 🙂

The blousy fit of this housedress wasn’t quite what I wanted, so I decided to take it in from the back. 

On my dress form it went!

Seeeee?

Then, I sewed a single seam down my pinned line.

Whirrrr!

I snipped off the extra fabric.

Wow!

Okay…so now my new dress is looking less like something I’d only wear to putz around the house and more like something I’d actually wear out and about! 

But, I still needed to hike up the length a good bit more.

I folded my new hem under twice, pinned it, and then ran it through my sewing machine.
