I don’t know what I would do without my dress form I lovingly refer to as “Minnie” …as in my “mini me.” Technically, her name should be “Mini” but I digress.
How awesome is this print?
At my Job #1 we had a very large sewing class and I was unable to access my usual accoutrements for refashioning…including Minnie 😦
Patience is so not a virtue for me, so I decided to proceed without her.
I measured a length across my chest where I would be comfortable with my new neck hole and decided on 12 inches. Turning my skirt inside out and using the bottom of the skirt as the new top for my shirt, and using the existing center seam as a reference, I marked said 12 inches.
And, there’s that pesky “arm hole” situation I have to deal with now… Luckily, this skirt originally had a button closure. Since it’s on its side now (and upside down), the button closure in now on the side too.
The left side of the garment had to be “opened,” so I measured 12″ down from the top edge, marking it with a pin, and cut it open for the left armhole.
And! Look who’s wearing flip flops for the first time in 7months?!?!
And I’m quite proud of myself for simply using the old noggin’ and doing this refashion without any help from Minnie. She’s awesomesauce but today I was aweseomsauce 😉
