Well, between my sister visiting, a reallyyy busy couple weeks at work, and celebrating my 1 year wedding anniversary, I've had exactly 0 time or brainpower to do much lately. I have managed to squeeze in a few little projects these last few weeks, and here they are. I promise, more exciting things to come soon!
|I cut off the sleeves, neck, bottom, and then cut strips in the side which I then tied to create the look below|
|It was still a bit baggy over all, so I gathered the back and held it in place with a little loop of fabric|
|This dress is from the 'Giant box of things my XS/S BFF sent me' collection. It fit almost perfectly, but the bust was a leeeettllleee too tight|
|I started by removing the elastic in the back, which right there gave it some more room.|
|I cut the straps, then down each side of the bust so I could insert some black jersey gussets|
|Inserting these little triangles was a paaaiiinnn. Getting them even on each side and an even width was a multi-try process|
|And done! I added the black on the straps too to make them longer|
|Side gussets. It looks a little loose because I wasn't wearing a bra... With the proper undergarments, it now fits perfectly, AND that little seam you see there is a pocket. A business casual dress with pockets that now I can breathe in. Woo!|
|Here is an old pair of husband's pajama pants. I decided to make them into a skirt|
|Thanks for helping make sure everything is lined up correctly, Leon.|
|I did the classic 'cut the legs apart, sew, leave a back vent' method. I then hemmed it a little because it was a scoosh too long|
|But it has pockets! That's a huge plus, right?|
Hugs to all!
