Little Black Dress

Every girl needs a little black dress, right?  Today's refashion started with an ill fitting, boxy black dress.
I am in need of a business professional outfit for a presentation next week and I figured this would do the trick!  I removed the sleeves, buttons, and brought the waist in and the hips out. The buttons weren't actually functional (there is a zipper in the back), but when I removed the buttons there is a placket along the front would not lay flat.  I quickly fixed this with a seam down the front.  And voila!

If you want a little more info on how I made this transformation happen you can check out my original post.  Happy sewing everyone!

Love the 'new' dress! You look like you are channeling Audrey Hepburn (but with hip wayfarers!)
