My favorite refashion EVER!

I'm going to show you my favorite refashion EVER!
Okay, so this sundress had potential, but a few problems!  One is the hole in the hem near the hand that is holding the skirt.  Another is the length.  When you are 6 feet tall like I am, often clothes end up looking too short!  And then there's the shape of the dress overall...makes me look pregnant.  Which I am not!  Good thing I love to refashion!!
Ahhhh, much better!  So why is this my favorite refashion?  First of all, it's a no-sew!  All I did was literally cut off the top and fix that little hole!  (Okay, so I sewed the hole, but you could find a similar sundress and do the same thing and it would be no-sew!!)  Second, it's loooooong enough for my looooong legs!  I wear it all the time.  
Now I want to know what is your favorite thing you've sewn so far in 2014.  And if you link it up to the sew-along on our blog, you have the chance to win fabric from Mapology!  Also, you really should come over to our blog this week to support Lauren, (one of our editors here on Refashion Coop) as she is a competitor this week in Mystery Fabric Swap Week!  Come on over to Skirt Fixation to see what it's all about!
