Hello Refashion Co-op. I have been working on some dresses lately. these two dresses had a lot in common. they fit but were too low cut in the front. I could just wear a tank top underneath but when I did that it was too bulky and sloppy looking.
I decided to cut the front of a tank top style shirt and attach it to the inside of the dress. I thought it would keep the armholes and back of the dress neat and fitting well. I attached the shirt at the spots where you see pins. I didn't sew it down all the way around because I thought it would look more smooth and move more naturally this way.
This purple dress got basically the same treatment. I used the front of a long sleeve T shirt and attached it at the top, sides and mid-section. You can see the pins in the picture below. That is where I attached the shirt to the dress.
I was more comfortable wearing the dress with a little more coverage in the front. I went apartment hunting with my mother and visited a place still under construction. I was pleased the hard hat coordinated with the dress.
Thanks for reading, now go make something fun for yourself.
