Sometimes No Sleeves is Better

Look at this gem of a dress!
Okay so she's a little dated but I just love love love the stripes!!
So I began by taking the bottom part off (to be used as a sash!)and hemming the dress.

Hard at work!

Buh- Bye sleeves! I finished the arm hole simply by folding the fabric under and sewing it in place.
Next, I pinned and sewed the front into a V-Neck.
Last but not least, I took the scrap of fabric from the bottom of the dress sewed it into a sash and then added a very fashionable button!

The husband thought I looked so pretty in my new refashion he took me out!


Happy Refashioning!

Welcome to the community! I love your refashion, and I agree -- I cannot resist pretty stripes either -- or dots. Also, I would continue to make pretty refashions just so my husband would take me out!
