Welcome to the second installment of…
I really enjoyed wearing my no-sew dress, but I had to move on to my second refashion of this strange brown thing! 🙂
To get started, I chopped off a good bit from the sleeves. It’s hot here. Seriously hot. Long sleeves just won’t do!
I put the dress on my dress form inside-out and backwards and got to reshaping!
I only kept one side pinned though. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be able to get my newly-pinned dress off the form! I measured the unpinned side against the pinned side with my measuring tape to get those pins even steven on both sides!
Each side went under the needle…
…and the extra fabric got chopped off and stored for later!
Remember how I said I turned it backwards? My reason for this was to turn that tacky velcro back closure into an attractive V-neck, like so:
I still wasn’t quite done! The fit was much improved, and the neckline was waaaaaay better, but my new dress still lacked oomph!
I remedied this with one more chop!
I wore my new dress to work, followed by Yappy Hour (and no…that’s not a typo!) at Jake’s!
For those of you who have been clamoring for more Douglas, the following pics are for you!
Alright, folks! That’s two down, one to go! Wonder what I’ll do for my final refash of this dress….Stay tuned!
