Mom had this blue and khaki linen dress that she didn’t wear any more, so she said that I could have it. The reason she didn’t wear it anymore was because the hem was sort of wavy. I guess this happens to linen dresses after a while because of the nature of linen. The reason she still had it taking up space in her poor old closet was because it was a tall size and she'd spent a lot of money on it and hated to just throw it away! But instead of throwing it away, we decided to do a linen dress refashion. It was a bit too long in the sleeves and hem for my taste, so I decided to start there. I started by cutting almost a foot off of the bottom and re-hemming it. Then I did the same to the sleeves.
