I am sorry for the quality of the pictures. No sunlight and only a mobile phone camera is not the best premisses for good photos.
- I found a remnant of black chiffon, and pinned it to my foam floor tiles (that I use for workout), so it couldn't run away from me, that pesky thing.- I measured from my hipbone to the hem of the dress. I added 2 cm (hem) and 1 more cm (upper seam).
- Then I used a pin and my measuring tape as a pair of compasses, using the number from above in order to draw half a circle. I cut it into two fourths.
Chiffon is a notorious pain in the behind to hem, but back when I made my poofy frilly skirt, I found a clever way of tackling it hemming chiffon. You can also see it in the blog post for this refashion: Hemming chiffon
Once I had seamed the gussets, I stitched them to the ripped open side seams.
|I wear a black satin slip underneath in case you were wondering.|
I had a narrow satin belt that fit just nicely to dress. Now I am ready for a party to come my way. :-D
