Layered Dress Refashion

Hello Refashioners!

This latest refashion I finished was made from this double layered rayon dress I found at the thrift store a few months back:




 I liked the deep maroon color and the softness of the rayon fabric, and the double layers meant it was a lot of usable fabric. This refashion only used some of the under layer of the dress, so I still have more to make another coordinating piece.

I used a pattern for a straight skirt to determine where to cut the fabric and take in the side seams of the under layer to transform it into a new skirt:


The rayon fabric means this skirt is very comfy. I used an invisible zipper and bias tape to finish the skirt.


You can see more about it here on my blog.

Happy refashioning!
