When I hear "boho," I think lace, florals, loose and flowy fabrics. So for this week's Refashion Runway sew-along, I came up with two different projects that fit the bill: a $2 thrifted 90s floral dress and a free, but damaged, scarf.
For the dress, I removed the poofy sleeves and giant shoulder pads. The sleeve fabric was used to expand the bust to fit and also to make new side seam pockets. The midsection was removed to make the skirt shorter and a little fuller, and the remnant of fabric became the binding for the armholes.
Next I repaired the scarf's damage and hemmed the ends, which were then folded inward toward the center. A couple shoulder seams and some armholes later, and I've got a gauzy little kimono-style jacket with fantastic lace detailing.
