Fixing my mom's dress
My mom has totally turned on to my refashion hobby and has now began to parlay clothing to me to see what I can do with it. Take this dress
Now this color looks great on my mom but not so much on my self. It was too big. The sleeves flew up. But the fabric swirly detail on the bottom was really cool. I decided a color change was in need - dyed it scarlet red from RIT dye. I added a piece of elastic to the waist area to cinch it in, followed by 3 sort of darts into each sleeve. To finish the sleeves, I did a rolled hem on the edge, which then made me realize I had to take in an arm hole. Done!
