The Two Dress Combo

Hello Refashion Co-op. I recently combined two dresses that didn't work for me into one dress that did. It was very simple. One dress was too small (The colored stripes.) and one dress was too plain(The solid black.). I'm sure looking at the pictures, it is clear what I did.


I cut the solid black dress along the seam it had at the waist. The best part of this dress is the super soft knit material.I cut the striped dress just under the zipper. The best part of this dress is at the bottom. Those colored bands are so cute.


I put them together. If you look closely, you can see the chalk marks where I was going to take the skirt part in just a bit. I wanted it to match the top in size. Some super easy sewing followed.


And Shazam! I had a new dress. 


Thanks for reading, now go make something fun for yourself.
