What better way to celebrate the long-awaited arrival of autumn in Texas than to whip up a cute floral dress to wear with tights and boots? So I pulled out this Laura Ashley number from a recent clothes swap. It fit alright and was nice medium-weight jersey fabric perfect for cooler weather, but the skirt was a bit too long and the collar a lot too tight. Seriously, I could barely get my gargantuan cranium through that thing!
First, I did a little trim-and-hem the skirt. Then I cut a new neckline and used the original hem of the skirt as a new neckband. Easy peasy!
