One Dress, Three Ways II: No-Sew Dress to High Low Top Refashion
Refashioning a (Badly) Handmade Dress

When I found this dress for $1 at the thrift store, I just couldn’t decide what I wanted to do with it. There were so many possibilities!

That’s why it’s time for another round of…

My first refashion for this boring frock is a no-sew, and it’s super easy!

First, I took one of my arms out of its sleeve and pulled it through the neck hole, like so:

Whatever shall I do with you, sleeve?

Next, I grabbed a neat belt buckle cover thing I thrifted ages ago and slipped the sleeve through.

If you don’t have one of these, don’t fret! Your frock will look just fine without it, but I was feeling a bit fancy. 🙂

I safety pinned the sleeve to the side seam of the dress, tucking the pin on the inside, then flopping the sleeve over itself to hide all evidence of pinnage…

My new dress is just the thing for celebratory dinner with my fella.  🙂
