If I have time, I like to work up a couple different refashions for each Refashion Runway theme, and then pick my favorite to submit. This one turned out rather nice but just didn't quite make the cut. It began with a lovely smocked velvet robe.
I removed the collar, zipper, cuffs, and sleeves. The sleeves formed the new front panels, while the upper back remained the upper back. I round the lower front corners of the skirt portion before reattached it to the bodice with a little elastic at the waist. And tada! Faux wrap, red velvet, tulip dress!
