Easy summer wear

I liked the patten and the fabric, which is 100% cotton. But I am not sure if I would want to wear such a long skirt during this hot summer weather, this easy makeover is very simple, everyone can try as long as you have a sewing machine.
First, cute the length you prefer, I cut it 2 inches above my knees, which left about 12" to make ruffs on the buttom.
How to lock the loose edge without a serger? I used #30 on the swing machine to enclosed the loose edge, and it worked.

I also wanted to tighten the circle below the bust, so I had to sew a narrow strip from the inside and hand-sew two button holes on the front to allow a thin rope to go through.

Now that was easy and super fast. We just completed a cool summer dress. Please click here for more designs and subscribe to my newsletter to receive many more re-fashion ideas every week!

I love fun flirty dresses in the summer. I'm with you -- not a big fan of the long dresses during the summer. Great job.
