Day 215: Blue Skies Dress

Day 216: That Little Black Dress
Day 214: Jilly Pulitzer Dress

Today’s dress wasn’t so bad when I first found it.  :)

I've see a LOT worse!

That blue hue is all sorts of awesome, but this dress needs a bit more pizzazz!

First, I shortened the sleeves with a couple o’ snips.


Then, I put my dress on my dress form and started cutting the hem.  I went for a shorter in the front, longer in the back look…a mullet skirt, if you will.  :D

First one side, then the other. :)

I used that bottom scrappy part as a sash to cinch the waist.

Not too shabby for a no-sew refash!  :)

No sewing required!
Skirt from the side!
Gotta love that electric blue!

  1. Love this! Especially because of the hi-low skirt,but I’ve found it’s easier to cut a hi-low skirt evenly if you fold it and then cut, like so . Keep up the great work!!!
