I've had this thing for years and I was just recently inspired to finish it :)
|Cut skirt from bodice. This is always a good place to start.|
When I took a look at the back of the top piece, I fell in love with the button closure. It hit me; a jacket! :)
I cut the ribbed binding at the waist and did a rolled hem on the left over raw edge.
A new favorite is born.
Would you believe I had this dress in my stash for SO long, I actually deleted my before pics... Oops! Luckily, I was able to find them in my "Recycle Bin" *whew
I guess the moral of the story is not to give up: Take a step back (days, weeks, years, whatever...) and revisit later to overcome Refashioner's Block :)
Happy Leap Day! Make your extra day count :)
