I got this hot little number at, where else but, the Goodwill. Yes, you really must emphasize the Goodwill.
I love the print of the jacket cover-up thingy. The dress itself was uber comfortable; however, this reminded me of all the church lady dresses I grew up seeing (and still see, sadly) in the early 90s.
I decided to make a flowy top out of the bottom half of the dress, so I cut accordingly.
I wanted this to be pretty big and kind of peasant-y. I didn’t want anything too fitted. So, I decided to do a little topsy-turvy action. I made the top/bottom of the scrap the side (of what would be my new shirt). And made the sides into the top/bottom (of what would be my new shirt). Kapeesh?
So I had to sew down the sides and cut off the existing seams…
After MANY a failed attempt at making this a long sleeved (dare I say, batwing inspired) shirt it just WASN’T happening for me!
I hate my arms. 3 years of tricep kickbacks and I still have flab 😦 Oh well. That will be my next surgery that I’ll have to pay for out of pocket… Sorry, I digress.
I had to turn this into a one-shouldered shirt! Yes, like many a-refashionista before me I have jumped on the One-shoulder bandwagon!
I finished off the raw seams
Made a couple of tweaks and Voila!
I must say, I rather like this one! 🙂
