MuuMuu to Pretty Polka Dots

Not the best quality photo for the before, but you get the gist. Too big, too long, too much polka dot muumuu type dress. So let's make it more flattering!

Lil' run down of what I did:

+ Cut the sleeves off and refashioned into capped sleeves
+ Sewed darts down the sides to make it more flattering and fitted
+ Cut quite a few inches off the bottom and sewed a new shirt hem
+ Made a pointed belt out of the leftover fabric

And here's the before and after side by side!

Thanks for reading!

You had me at dots. I love this refashion. I love taking too big clothes and turning them into something awesome in my size. Great job!
