Day 67: Pop Festival Dress

Day 68: No Mo Polo
Day 66: Pride Dress

Today’s piece started out as a perfectly fine Hippie Skirt.

It's not bad at all...

But in case you haven’t noticed, I have a hard time wearing anything how it’s intended to be worn.  :)

I took this skirt and put in on my dress form, upside-down and inside-out.  I pinned it where I wanted to new shoulders to be, and a bit further down each side to make peekaboo batwing sleeves.  :)

Peek A Boo!

Next, I ran the pin parts through my machine to stitch them down.

It only takes a few stitches...you could even do this by hand. :)

Now I have a perfectly light and comfy dress to wear for this:

I work hard, so I play hard! :)

Whaddya think?

Ready for some awesome music!

Here’s a close-up of those sleeves!  :)

Easy-Peasy Batwing Sleeves! :)

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Labor Day weekend!  Cheers!

  1. This is my favorite off all your refashions that I’ve seen so far! (I’ve been reading your blog backwards). ;) Thanks for all the inspiration.

  2. Love these upside down skirt dealies. These would be great for plus sizes too, for those bemoaning the lack of plus-friendly fashions or not being able to find pieces big enough to refashion. You can find pretty big broomstick skirts if you look.
