This lovely, stretchy LBD was .25 cents at my favorite thrift store.
Too bad this fit does NOTHING for my bottom half. #StoryOfMyLife
There’s a simple solution:
I cut 10″ -ish off the length. With the discarded material I had more than enough to make a cute cap sleeve.
I followed the same process that I used for my Velvet Sewalong Refashion to accomplish this.
It was a fairly simple process. And I think the outcome was quite nice 🙂
I finished the bottom raw edge on my serger using a rolled hem.
My thighs are still (and probably always WILL be) gargantuous. But I do think this is a more flattering fit.
I wore this to church on Father’s Day. Because the back cut was also a deep scoop I wore a simple cardigan with it.
But for our celebration with dad in the evening I took off the cardigan.
This is the last “couch” photo we’ll ever have in this house 😦 My parents are downsizing to a condo and will be moving in August. I’m going to miss this house so much. I grew up in this house.
2017 is definitely a year of big changes in our family. More on that later…
In the meantime, happy refashioning. As always, keep it simple.
