One Dress, Three Ways II !

Welcome to the FINAL CHAPTER in the saga of…

beforebefore

Yesterday’s dress was really awesome!  A lot of you said you wanted me to just stop what I was doing and leave it be.  For those people, all I can say is…

The Doctor understands how I feel.

Time to get a choppin’!  :)

Don't worry.  It'll all be okay!
Don’t worry. It’ll all be okay!

I decided to turn this dress into a top, just to try and make it into something totally different from its previous incarnations.

That middle part is going to be the foundation of my new piece!  I folded the top raw edge under once, pinned it, and stitched it down!  I used a zigzag stitch so it would stay stretchy.

Whirrrrr!
Whirrrrr!

Remember the leftover side scraps from the second version of this dress?  I’m glad I saved them, as they were going to come in handy for this refash!  I cut them into two identical strips, folded them in half, then stitched them up!

Strip tease!
Strip tease!

I turned each of the fabric tubes inside-out and pinned them to the top of my new top!

So far, so good!
So far, so good!

Then, I stitched them down!

“Well that’s not very exciting!” you’re saying to yourself right now.   “Big whup!  A boring tank top!” you’re adding.

But wait…there’s more!  :)

I took the bottom high-low scrap and snipped a bit off the bottom.  Then, I folded the top edge under twice.

What do I have in mind?

I ran this through my machine, using a straight stitch!

Hmmmmm...I wonder...
Hmmmmm…I wonder…

I grabbed my scissors and started snipping!

It's all becoming clear now, isn't it?
Snip.  Snip.  Snip.  Snip.  Snip.  Snip.  Snip.  Snip.  Etc.

This took a while.

I pinned my new fringy thingy all the way around my new top like so:

Fun with fringe!
Fun with fringe!

For my final trick, I stitched it down with a zigzag!

It's all coming together!
It’s all coming together!

I wore the third version of this dress to California Dreaming where Erin and I consumed several ridiculously cheap drinks!

John Wayne aint got nothing on my fringe game, Hell no!  ;)

When I say cheap, I mean cheap.  House liquor drinks are $1.95 apiece.  All the time.  Always!

This pleased us.

We are pleased!
We are pleased!
You may be cheap, but I love you all the same!

That’s it!  This is the last one!  The end of One Dress, Three Ways!

But I want to know which one was YOUR favorite version?

Was it Dress 1, Dress 2, or Top 3?  :)
