In my last refashion, I began with this miserable frock.
Luckily, it didn’t stay that way for very long after its first refashion!
But remember, this is…
Woo hoo! Time for refashion #2!
I took my scissors to the top part of the dress, and removed the skirt part, leaving just about 1/2 an inch of fabric.
The reason I left a little leftover fabric from the skirt is because I’m about to turn this dress into a top, but it was already going to be pretty short as-is. I didn’t want it to be any shorter than that.
Next, I pinned that edge down. Now, if this was going to be the final version of this refashion, I would have serged the raw edge before adding the hem. But, since I’m going to be making this into a dress again oh-so-soon, it’s fine.
Pinning commenced immediately.
Then, I ran it through my machine.
After a quick press to my new hem, I have a fun lil crop top!
Of course, not everyone likes to show skin about the midriff, which is totally fine. That’s why we have a third refashion coming up!
My new top paired really well with my owlie necklace I’ve had since the beginning of this blog. It’s only a little worse for wear.
I can’t wait for the third refashion of this once-dowdy dress!
