Horse Dress Refash

I picked this dress up for it's awesome hot pink horse pattern, and it being part of my 5 for $5 wasn't bad either! Only 1 problem...

It had no buttons to button up the front. Yikes!

I removed the scratchy tag and the 4 buttons that were on the sleeves.

I used a ruler to make straight lines to form a square.


I cut out the square.

Then I cut a square of hot pink lace.

I pinned the lace in the hole I cut.

Oh! Did you notice my new pin cushion!? Part of my black friday score from JoAnns!

I sewed the lace.

I cut 8 inches off the sleeves.

Rolled the sleeves up 1/2 inch and sewed it.

Then folded again, 1 inch and sewed that in place.

I cut a small piece of the lace.


Pinned and sewed it into the dress where the buttons were being sewed on.

Sewed on the bottons I saved from the sleeves. I was 1 short so I found this square button that was a close match.

The lace and the buttons!

This is our pretty little tree in our family room :) We were getting ready for a night of Wild Lights at the Detroit Zoo!
 

It was a cold 34 degrees for our night out. So I wore my new dress with a scarf, leggins and my new thrifted cowgirl boots!

The back!
Me and the hubby!

 












We had such a fun time looking at these awesome christmas light desplays but it was nice to get back inside where it was warm!



Happy Refashioning!!!
