I almost didn’t want to bother with today’s piece.
It might not look so bad at first glance, but look a bit closer.
First off, this dress is pretty unflattering on me, as I’m bigger on the bottom than I am up top. It just doesn’t do anything for me. :/
Also, it’s really worn out and faded. 🙁
Let’s refashion this dress into an asymmetrical top!
Before I got to chopping, I reached for a box ‘o dye!
I left my dress in its dye bath for about 40 minutes, then gave it a rinse & dry.
So, now the fading has been taken care of, but what about the shape?
I decided I didn’t feel like wearing a dress today anyway, so I made a big chop!
This dress is made of cotton jersey, so there was no need to hem that bottom edge, as it isn’t going to fray. 🙂
Now I have a fun Art Deco-ish asymmetrical top! 🙂
This is what I wore to work today. Yes…I am apparently incapable of dressing like a proper grown-up.
The way I see it is, work is grown-up enough! Might as well surround yourself with as many fun things as possible!
But perhaps this is silly. Maybe the time has come to do away with childish things…
…or not. 🙂
