I have a soft spot in my little ReFashionista heart for handmade garments. When I found this one, I snatched it up, despite it being pretty awkward.
The print is cool, if faded, and that light cotton fabric is perfect for our still-warm temps. Plus…I knew it would take on dye like a charm!
Remember this funky frock? Well…it wasn’t alone in its dye bath!
Of course this dress took the dye on much better than it’s partially synthetic pal!
This dress needed a bit of reshaping, so that’s what I did!
In order to get my more fitted dress off the form, I had to unpin a few pins. No worries. I just made a chalk line so I could re-pin one side with ease!
After I chopped off the excess fabric, I stitched the two bits together. I left the edges raw, as I thought it would give this otherwise conservative dress a bit of an edge.
I rolled the sleeves up a bit, and my new dress was ready for wine with my newly-injured pal!
Check it out! I have a new asymmetrical ‘do that I have a HUGE crush on!
Here’s a look at my dress (and ‘do!) from the back!
Even with a broken foot, Erin was still nice enough to take my “after” pic. 🙂 Please send good healing vibes her way! 🙂
