Shorter Flowers

Hello Refashion Co-op. I found this great floral dress at a clothes swap recently. It fit really well and I liked the little cap sleeves. The length was much too long on me. That was an easy thing to fix.

I made a big cut so it was a much shorter dress. The new length was perfect for a hot summer day. And since we are in a heat wave where I live, this dress is perfect.

I decided to make a lettuce leaf hem. I think it was Accidental Seamstress that showed how to do this a couple months ago. It was very easy and quick, just as she said. 

Thanks for reading, for more details and pictures go to I Can Work With That.

Thanks, I never would have tried it if Accidental Seamstress had not said it was easy. She was so right. So big thanks to her.
