Hello everyone, I hope you all have had a great summer. Summer in our house is all about our daughter and driving her around with her friends. And summer patio parties. Doesn't leave much time or energy for altering.
I did manage to work on something though. It was a traditional Mexican dress I pickup on our last vacation there. Trouble was it was just too big.
It took me quite awhile to decide what to make from this dress, so that I wouldn't lose the wonderful embroidery. Once I did, I started cutting...
and piecing small sections together to make bigger pieces.
All the extra cutting and piecing was worth the effort. I love the top!
To get more information on how I did this, and the pattern I used, check out my blog. Happy Altering.
