The Shift Dress with Drop Waist

I was at a bag sale recently and found a ton of vintage drop waist dresses. They were all too big for me so I started looking around for how to change them. I started with this purple dress.

I found an inspiration dress that had a drop waist pleat on both sides. I cut my dress shorter and then added a pleat to the side. I only added one pleat because I'm pretty short and that would be way too much pleat. 

My tutorial can be found here!

Happy Sewing!
