First refashion of 2016; complete!
This one was pretty basic, but it took some doin'! Come along and check it out....
|Adorable, but toooo big in the bust area!|
|Not good. Plus, as much as I like strapless, I don't like fussing the fussing around that goes with it (you know, the constant cinching up, etc)|
|Step one: remove stupid broken ribbon hanger loops, and belt loops. I will literally never wear this belted, so there was no need to keep em!|
|Flip inside out and pin...|
|We did some major Frankenpining to make everything tight!|
|Sew down the sides...|
|...And stitch together at the top, since this seam was bulky and my sewing machine said noooo thank you|
|What is this for??|
|Ahhhh I see!|
|Each piece was JUST barely long enough!|
|Sew in the front...|
|Sew in the back...|
|And now the bust is nice and fitted. The lace is thick enough too that I can honestly get away with wearing my nude bra underneath. You can hardly see the straps!|
Now just a quick iron of the bottom ruffles and she'll be good to go! I hope 2016 has been good to y'all so far. Here's to another year of refashions!
