Okay, you guys! Pay attention, because what you’re about to see is my personal FAVORITE refashion to date! :) :) :) :) :)
It all began with this $1 skirt.
You’ve seen a lot of skirt to dress refashes on this blog, but not quite like this. :) I put the skirt on my dress form like so:
Then I sewed a line where I pinned out my future sleeve!
Then I sewed another line next to the first one!
I made a cut between the two lines, like so:
I tightened up the non-sleeve side to make my new dress more fitted.
I cut off the excess fabric, and now I have this ah-maz-ing new frock!!! :) :) :)
I wore my fabu new dress to spend some quality/quantity time with a delightful friend from out of town who sneakily snapped the following pic. :)
