The Floor Length Floral

Hello Refashion Co-op. Check out this floral number. It's colorful and super soft, breathable silk. It is great for summer because it is light and cool in the heat.

The dress itself wasn't in bad shape, it just needed a big cut in length and a new hem,

It was perfect for a hot summer day at an antique fair.

I also used the bottom of the dress to make a new infinity scarf.

Thanks for reading, for more details and pictures go to  I Can Work With That
Happy sewing!

I love the shorter dress and it is perfect for walking around an antique fair. And I love the infinity scarf because it's so colorful that it could complement any color shirt. Great job.

Thanks Ladies. It was great silk material. How often do you get silk? Me? Not often.
