When I found this crisp blue dress, I completely fell for the pintucked & buttoned neckline.
Sadly, this dress is a poor fit for me, and the length is awful. :/ Plus, it was coming apart at the seams!
Luckily, this is a pretty straightforward and simple refash. :) By taking my new dress in on the sides, I fixed the hole problem.
After I took it in and chopped off the extra fabric from the sides with my pinking shears, I tried my dress on, and pinned it where I wanted the hem to go. More chopping followed!
I hemmed that raw edge and gave the whole thing a nice and thorough press!
I think my new dress looks like it could have jumped out of or (two of my favorite inspiration sites) , but you can be the judge!
I wore my fun vintage-y frock for a night with friends, both human and canine! :)
