Wowza! Today’s dress has a LOT going on, doesn’t it? :)
I actually really like the extremely busy pattern on this dress. :) Unfortunately, It’s extremely old lady-ish and way too big!
Not to fear! :)
First, I cut off that bottom patterned section, and put it aside.
I took the dress in on the sides by about 2″.
The back of the dress was still super-blousy though. :/ As I’m not going for the one humped camel look this spring, I took it in a bit from the back, too!
Next, I lopped off a bit more length.
Almost done! I grabbed that scrap from the original bottom of the dress, trimmed it down, and stitched it into a lovely little sash! :)
And now that cute dress is ready for a day at the office! :)
