In between unpacking and other things, I decided to finally do something about a dress I have.
It is a super cute dress from Lane Bryant that I love except for one thing. The bottom is weird, and doesn't really fit right. It's too big in the wrong places and too small in the wrong places. I can't really explain it, but it wasn't working for me. It was such a bummer because I love the top! So I decided to make a change. I started by chopping off the skirt at the waist band. I was careful to only cut the threads so the fabric is still usable. Then I went shopping for a new fabric. I found this white flowy fabric that I loved and the ruffles it has is a great for hiding all the parts I don't quite love about my midsection.
Next I had to hand pleat the fabric and tack it to the elastic waist band to be sewn. After it was attached, I topstitched it to completely attach the fabric and it was complete.
Aaahh much better! I wore it to see a play last night and it was perfect! I love the new look of it, and now that it fits better, I will wear it way more often!
Refashion anything lately? Thank you again for sticking with me during this crazy time, I promise things will be figured out soon!
