Yes, I only tilt my head to one side obviously!
As you can see, I literally just cut the bottom white part off (I’m thinking about making it into a cosmetic bags of sorts to go inside the tote) Two of the things that make this dress so great for a tote bag, are the facts that it's lined, and it has pockets that turn into outside pockets for keys and cell phones!
So from here, I just sewed the bottom! The ONLY tricky thing about this project is how you sew the lining and outside, and remembering to leave a hole when sewing the outside so you can flip it back right side out. Basically, you want the lining seam to be facing OUT towards the outside, and the outside to be facing IN towards the lining, so in the end you cant see any of the seam allowance. Does that make sense? To do this, first I sewed the lining WRONG SIDES TOGETHER as is like so:
And you're pulling the outside fabric up, so you can sew RIGHT SIDES together, so it looks like this:
Sew across just like the lining, and remember to leave the flipping hole!
Flip it through, and you're done!!
