House Dress to Chic Dress

 Hello Refashion Co-op. I found this fabulous floral dress at a clothes swap and the big flowers caught my eye. It was too long and the ruffles were not working for me. 

Before and after.

I removed the big ruffle at the hem. 

I also used a pattern to make a different shoulder shape.

I cut new front and back pieces.

I originally wanted a sleeveless dress but I decided to add these little ruffles to the arm holes.

Ruffles are always fun.

I hemmed the dress. It had a nice high-low hemline that was not visible with the big ruffle in the way. I really liked how it turned out. Thanks for reading along. For more pictures and details go to I Can Work With That.

The dress now looks a lot cooler! And the print is perfect for this time of year. I see you having a cocktail by the swimming pool in this dress:).
