A little change goes a long way
I had a very fruitful oppy expedition with my sister more than a week ago now..... and one of the things I found was this lovely dress.
The length was wrong, and it had these weird ties connected at both sides, so you could pull it in from the front, or from the back to give waist definition, but either way, the opposite side just looked stretched and strange!
A very quick and very easy re-fashion was all it needed. It probably took me about thirty minutes in total.
I snipped off the ties (leaving them about 3inches long), overlocked the edges, turned them in and and stitched them down to make belt loops.
I cut four inches from the bottom of the dress and overlocked and re-hemmed.
Then I took the dress offcut and the tie offcuts, and joined them together to make a belt.
So... $4 and thirty minutes of my time. What do you think?
