A Quick Refashion

I picked up a knit dress on clearance a year or so ago - it was fairly long, and more clingy than I'd hoped.
I cut it to knee length, thinking it would be more flattering, and it sat in my closet, until it got buried in the bottom of a Garments-Waiting-to-be-Refashioned Bag.

I pulled it out today, and decided to have another go at making it wearable for me.
I cut it way shorter, and dropped the front and back necklines, using the original folded hem to make a neckband.
I then joined strips of the cut off skirt to make a soft pleated frill.
Not a very exciting design, but I'll definitely wear it now!

That is super cute. Great way to save some of the dress and make it into something you can wear all the time.

Saw this on the older posts. Great ideas for some summer sewing.
