Welcome back to the 1980’s, everybody! :) Today’s piece is a fitted & shoulderpadded number that reminds me of one I had as a kid!
It’s not all bad news here though! Right now bright neon colors are incredibly in, so all this dress needs is a bit of an update. :)
First, I ripped out those shoulder pads, as I had no intention of playing any full- sports that day. ;)
I thought this dress would work much better as a top, so I hacked off some of the length.
Then I snipped off those way-too-dated sleeves!
I cut a few triangle-shaped notches along the edge of my new armholes. This makes it easier to fold them over for pinning!
After I pinned my arm holes with the greatest of ease, I ran each one through my machine!
Then I gave that bottom raw edge a new hem as well!
Now that 80’s top is looking way more current! :)
My new top enjoyed hanging out with a few fun friends! :)
