By the time fella and I got back in town from G-vegas, the last thing I wanted to do was touch my sewing machine. I pulled out a sad-looking frock, and thought of no-sew solutions to fix it.
The purple print is awesome. It reminds me of Liberty of London.
Unforunately, it’s huge, poufy, and it has these:
Time for a no-sew quick fix!
First, I chopped out those pads!
Then, I rolled those poufy sleeves waaaaay up. I grabbed my obi belt from my trouser dress, and used it to give this dress a waist. :) If you don’t have an obi belt already, I can’t recommend them highly enough (especially if you refashion)! I made mine out of a pair of men’s trouser legs, so see? It doesn’t even have to be expensive. :)
I think my new dress definitely has a Liberty of London feel. If hadn’t been so lazy, I would have chopped of that length. But since it looks like this is going to be the “in” length for dresses next spring (I’m quite good at predicting these things), It’s probably best left as-is. :)
