Hello Refashion Co-op. I found this dress over a year ago. It sat waiting for me to be inspired enough to take it on. It was very well made and in great shape. It fit well too.
It also has so much going on I decided to call it the everything dress. There are pleats, ruffles, colors, a cinched waist, a tie with beads.....I could go on and on.
I cut the top off. I just couldn't figure out what to do with the ruffles across the top.
I used a seam ripper to remove the leftover fabric from cutting the top off and I added elastic to the red band that hits right at the waist. I used the tie from the neck to make a little halter strap that ties in the back. I thought the beads were cute.
When I finished I was happy with the fit of the new waist and the pattern was easier on the eyes because there was less of it.
Thanks for reading, now go make something fun for yourself.
