My New Year’s resolution to not buy any new clothes for myself is a success! Nearly 7 months in to the new year I have only worn refashions! That being said, let’s get to today’s.
At first I didn’t like this part… but I was too lazy to seam rip it out; I’m not gonna lie.
Some taking in was in order too.
I only took in about 2″… ANY time I “take in” material like this it ends up being too small, even after I put it on my dress form and mark it and pin to kingdom come. It never fails! This material hates me or I’m just so awful at sewing (still) that I just-so-happen to mess it up every single time. IDK.
So, I only took it in a little bit.
…and it was too big.
That’s what safety pins are for
I finished the bottom with an easy rolled hem. And, ya know what? That ruffle is growing on me. It looks like a shirt I saw in my Victoria’s Secret catalog
One glorious day I’ll be able to wear mine without a stupid arm cover-upper.
I digress. In case you can’t tell, getting an arm lift is my current obsession.
