So I decided to make the deal with myself to make (at least) one refashion a week for the rest of 2017. I miss it so, and it is my creative outlet, which is good for me.
I found this dress on Pinterest in the first days of 2016 and fell in love. I had to make something similar. It took a year to get to it, but now it is made, yay.
(I link to the pin, but it is from this page, dress no. 7: http://eslamoda.com/outfits-neon-que-necesitas-llevar-tu-proximo-evento-formal ).
2½ years ago I refashioned this dress from a size S to a size M. The dress was good for this project, since it had since then become too little in the bust.Refashion no. 1.
Since I could not get it on anymore, here is a picture of it without me in it.
Go to the blogpost for more pictures and description on how I made this refashion: Dress with constrasting gusset in the back
I cut a gusset (godet?) in a fitting green fabric remnant.
I could have made darts in the front, but I instead opted for a fuller silhouet and ties in the waist.
The upper back can also drape above the ties.
And from the front as it is now.
I have always loved this dress, so I am happy to be able to wear it again.
The whole transformation from the beginning.
